Shakur Stevenson talks Spence vs Crawford, future fight with Gervonta Davis

Shakur Stevenson doesn’t think a fight with Gervonta Davis needs to be rushed, and gives his thoughts on the Spence vs Crawford matchup.

Stevenson says a fight against Tank shouldn’t be rushed.
Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

Junior lightweight titleholder Shakur Stevenson chats it up with the boxing media and fields some questions on what we hope will be an undisputed welterweight title unification between Errol Spence and Terence Crawford, and why he’s looking forward to a mega showdown with Gervonta Davis down the line.

On what Spence and Crawford should be aware of if they end up squaring off

“I think Bud’s gotta be aware that Errol wants a slugfest, so he wants to throw a bunch of punches, he wants to have an ugly fight. And Errol’s probably gotta be aware of Terence’s speed. Like, he don’t realize that Terence is a lot faster than he looks on the outside than when you get inside.

On the potential for a future showdown with Gervonta Davis

“I think that the fight with me and Tank is gonna happen when the time right. I feel like we are two special fighters, where I feel like those are the type of fights you want to just rush. I feel like me and him are so good that we’re gonna keep getting better and better and better. And then later on down the line I’m gonna be a big star, he’s already a big star, and then we clash and it’s gonna be a big, big fight. We don’t want to wait until it’s too late, but you just don’t want to rush those type of fights.”
