Shakur Stevenson still has the WBO featherweight titleholder for the moment, but the 22-year-old from Newark has recently stated his intention to move up to 130 in search of bigger fights, after his planned Mar. 14 fight was one of the first in boxing to be hit by the coronavirus pandemic.

For now, the young rising star is trying to stay busy, and he put up his personal, current pound-for-pound top 10 list on Instagram, tastefully not including himself.

Now me, I hate a pound-for-pound argument, which is why I don’t publish a pound-for-pound list in our weekly rankings (hey, remember when we had weekly boxing to talk about in the ancient days?) despite constant requests and pleas — as much as I love and value you all, I just can’t with another P4P debate every week. I CAN’T!! I CAN’T!!!!!

But here’s one, you can talk about this one. If I were to nitpick, I don’t think Deontay Wilder is near the top 10 (and I am not at all a “hater” of Deontay), but other than that I have no real significant with the way Shakur sees it right now. And by “I have no real significant problems” I mean that I can’t possibly get myself in a rage over the order of the top three. I am trying to remain positive minded these days, after all.
