    I still think that Shakur Steveson beats Gervonta Davis.

    I know that people will bring up the entertainment stuff but if you look at the objective facts Shakur Stevenson is a dominant boxer. Barely loses rounds and has never been in any serious trouble

    Gervonta Davis has that 1 punch knockout power but falls in love with his power too much and wont be able to win enough rounds.

    He'll be looking for that big shot all night long and it will never come

    Floyd Mayweather beat Manny Pacquiao
    Pernell Whitaker beat Julio Cesar Chavez (unofficially)
    Bernard Hopkins beat Felix Trinidad

    The sport is boxing at the end of the day and Stevenson is better at winning rounds than Davis

    Davis would use educated pressure, not much volume, but forcing Stevenson to work whilst Davis doesn’t waste any energy, the late rounds when Stevenson’s feet slow, he will start going through the gears and eventually hurt him and stop him, whilst being behind on the scorecards, but remaining confident in the game plan, similar to Usyk vs Bellew.

    This may be controversial, the only fighter at 135 I can see beating Tank is Andy Cruz. From a defensive perspective, Andy is just as good as Shakur(if not better) plus he is an elite offensive fighter with all the attributes. Shakur may be the most technical boxer in the game but he lacks that "It" factor.

    Its not gonna work. Stevenson is levels above Bellew and those are much bigger guys who tire out a lot easier

    Davis also doesnt have the high work rate of Usyk so not sure he can get Stevenson tired. He does have the threat of his power but weve never seen Stevenson tired

    Tank is a novelty fighter and all smoke and mirrors.
    I can't wait for this happen, and I can't wait to see all the poll results favor Tank only for Shakur to give him a beatdown. It's going to be so satisfying. Shakur always levels up and performs better when the opponent is better, this is gonna look very similar to Bhop vs Trinidad.

    Both are bums. Andy Cruz and Zepeda are the real young kings of 135 and they beat both Shakira and Stank.

    Frank Martin almost did it, Stevenson will box and run all night without slowing down like Martin. I see clear U. D and rants from the fans at the end of the day

    Possibly, styles make fights. It’s an awful style matchup for him.

    Now you’re getting stupid, “beat him down”, GTFOH. He definitely could out point him to a boring decision, but “beat him down”…you don’t believe that.

    I heard this EXACT same unoriginal argument when I stated that Crawford was going to beat down Errol and stop him. Styles make fights and you Tanksexuals are going to learn this the hard way. The cope is going to be so sweet.

    Crawford had shown a much greater offensive ability than Shakur Stevenson has.

    Crawford beat down Gamboa, Idongo, Horn, Jose Benavidez, stopped Shawn Porter. Shakur Stevenson only beat down Hering.

    Tank will beat Shakur. Shakur is very good but people over focus on Tank’s power forgetting he is actually a highly skilled accomplished boxer puncher with great ring IQ and generalship.
