Shakur Stevenson won the WBC lightweight title against Edwin De Los Santos, but his performance is being criticized across the board, as is the fight itself.
And for good reason: It was a remarkably bad fight to watch from an entertainment standpoint, even considering that no one other than the hype crew at ESPN would count on Stevenson to be an action fighter.
“Imagine going to this fight for Formula 1 weekend, I would ask for my money and I would go straight to bed, that’s how sleepy I would be being there,” Ryan Garcia said on social media .
Devin Haney, who had failed in negotiations for a fight with Stevenson before deciding to move up to 140, came down even harder.
“I should have offered that bum 10 percent, I was too generous!” he said. “Stop the scary story – no one was ever afraid of that tramp!” He wanted weight! That’s all they use my name for.
