The newest challenger to controversial Mayweather Promotions fighter Gervonta Davis has emerged. However, it is an unlikely one in Olympic bronze medalist and the other boxing wunderkind not named Devin Haney in Shakur Stevenson.
The Newark, NJ native turned Andre Ward mentee feels some type of way towards the Baltimorean and has let it be known pretty freely on Twitter. Not sure where the beef started but back in September Davis took a ghost shot at Stevenson.
You just said you looked up to me but you didn’t learn nothing from me?😂 1 of what bro https://t.co/etL3CfSYLL
Stop capping to social media boa – I learned nothing from you. Back in the day I used to look up to you before I knew you was 1 of them! https://t.co/EXchjIBUqT
Stevenson has been touted as the future of boxing as he climbs the ladder as a Top Rank prospect looking to become a contender. Managed by mogul James Prince and counting fighters like Terence Crawford as his big bro’s, Stevenson has been groomed for greatness for a long time.
Shakur in his feelings right now but he know I gave him more knowledge than anybody in the game including his “favorite fighters” lol https://t.co/UBmOdZ7AvB
So has Davis, who is famously the begrudging protege of Floyd Mayweather, Jr. Recently, Davis has been spending much of his time and training camps with Adrien “The Problem” Broner who is known to keep controversy and problems with him like his wave brush.
@Gervontaa Bro look @ yo first 9 fights and look @ mine look at the people I fought and look at the people u fought – U can’t compare to me and that’s facts only thing u got is that u older and been pro way longer…
Stevenson is a featherweight and Davis is currently a super featherweight champion. It is unlikely that Davis would come down in weight to fight Stevenson and Stevenson would be better served if he focused on his weight class where he shows extreme promise. Still, it’s always a great tea sipping moment when guys start beef on Twitter that might actually lead one day to a matchup, boxing politics aside.
😂😂😂 you faking for Twitter stop ot ya last fight got you big headed already…I’m gonna be the one that’s gonna tell you TR had to give you a cab driver becuz the fans was complaining about you not having no power and you still don’t 😩 https://t.co/A4KEWKAtiN
Only time will tell and Top Rank, Stevenson’s promoter, and Premier Boxing Champions, Davis’ contracted promotional platform, definitely do not play well but anything is possible in combat sports nowadays.
