    Better yet, name 5 people who he can't beat at 130.

    Clearly you are avoiding doing this because you know his resume is filled with bums. Does Berlanga deserve a title shot too? He’s 17-0 with 16 kos. He should actually be fighting tonight’s winner, right?

    Just as I thought, u can't name none. Let's be real. Berlanga just started to make a name for himself. He has never been a champion. Stevenson was a champion and has fought better competition!

    He is certainly talented but ultimately time will tell.

    Berlanga has fought as many champions as Shakur though. So no, you can’t really say Shakur has faced better competition if you can’t even name his five best wins or even one. For some reason Shakur gets praised, for what exactly?

    He gets credit for his boxing ability and skills. Pro fighters and coaches speaks high of him. U said Berlanga fought many champions? What champions has he fought?

    I said he’s fought as many as Shakur has, which is 0. So what makes Shakur so much better that he deserves a title shot with 15 fights against nobody. Berlanga is 17-0 with 16 kos, by your reasoning, he deserves a title shot right now too.

    Teofimo got a title shot at 13- 0. Loma got a title shot at 1-1. Now tell me what did they do or beat that made them deserve a title shot?

    Don’t try to swerve. Let’s keep this thread about Shakur. If you want to talk about Lopez and Loma, make that thread so we can talk about Lopez beating Magdaleno who lost 2 title fights before.
    So who exactly did Shakur beat in his fifteen fights that was facing world championship contenders?

    Wouldnt shock me.

    Hes got huge potential.

    Hopefully after this next fight, its a fight against one of the big names like Herring or Valdez.

    Plenty of TR guys in and around 130-135 for him to go up against. I'd imagine he'll end up settling in at 135.

    Oh no, did I make u hit a brick wall with your rhetoric on Shakur only being 15-0 which means to you that your not worthy? I rest my case! Ask yourself who did Lopez and Loma fight to get a shot.

    It’s not about being 15-0. It’s about the level of competition in those 15 fights. Same as Berlanga. He doesn’t deserve a title shot right now because his level of competition is subpar, just like Shakur. Make me hit a brick wall? You can’t even name Shakurs best wins against worthy competition. I rest my case.

    Make that thread if you want to talk about them. I’ll just take it that you won’t admit Shakur doesn’t have five wins over quality opposition. Everyone else knows it but you.
