Stevenson Invites Lomachenko to Witness Showdown with De Los Santos

Shakur Stevenson is gearing up for his WBC lightweight title clash with Edwin De Los Santos on Saturday, eyeing another step towards greatness in his 20-0 career. Stevenson, a two-division world champion, aims to add the 135lbs belt to his collection, having previously conquered the featherweight and super-featherweight divisions. Despite facing challenges in securing fights with notable names like Devin Haney and Tank Davis, Stevenson remains undeterred, emphasizing the lack of camaraderie with De Los Santos due to the scarcity of willing opponents.

While acknowledging De Los Santos’ attempt to secure a fight with him, Stevenson believes his upcoming opponent imitated his own tactics. Expressing confidence in De Los Santos’ abilities, Stevenson considers him a tougher challenge than initially proposed opponent Frank Martin. Stevenson’s willingness to face the best in his division is evident, and he believes a victory over De Los Santos will further establish his credentials as a dominant force in the lightweight category.

As Stevenson eyes potential future matchups, including a speculated bout with Emanuel Navarrete in 2024, he doesn’t shy away from expressing his desire for a showdown with Ukrainian star Vasiliy Lomachenko. Stevenson sees the Lomachenko bout as a bigger and more significant fight than a clash with Navarrete, envisioning it as an opportunity to prove he is “the truth” in the lightweight division. Stevenson extends an invitation to Lomachenko to witness his upcoming battle against De Los Santos, emphasizing the potential for a compelling matchup between the two.

Despite the ongoing speculations surrounding his next opponents, Stevenson maintains an “anytime, anywhere” attitude, willing to face any challenger that comes his way. With his eyes set on establishing himself as the best in the lightweight division, Stevenson’s journey continues, and fight enthusiasts eagerly await the outcome of his upcoming clash and the potential blockbuster matchups on the horizon.
