” Amir Khan and Terence Crawford are main eventing Madison Square Garden, but Shakur Stevenson made plenty of noise on the undercard at Madison Square Garden. The 21-year-old was a silver medallist at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro and following his victory over Christopher Diaz on Saturday night he has moved to 11-0 in the professional ranks.

1 Shakur Stevenson with Diaz at the weigh-ins Fans were lavishing praise on the young New Yorker – named after the late rapper Tupac Shakur – for his exceptional performance at the mecca of boxing. Diaz was no mug, either. The former WBO super featherweight world title challenger couldn’t win a round against the former Olympian en route to a unanimous decision loss and his one and only defeat prior to this defeat came in a world title fight.

Diaz, 24, tried to step on Stevenson’s leading foot to prevent the southpaw dictating the fight, but the young super featherweight was miles ahead of his foe. 4th or 5th time I’ve seen Stevenson now, and he looks better everytime #Boxing @BTSportBoxing definitely one to watch ?????? #KhanCrawford — Mackem82 (@paulmack1982) April 21, 2019 /**/ /**/ MSG crowd booing Shakur Stevenson, who cruised in that final round to what will be a lopsided decision.

Stevenson outclassd Diaz — but didn’t seem interested in the knockout. #CrawfordKhan — Chris Mannix (@SIChrisMannix) April 21, 2019 /**/ /**/ Virtuoso performance from Shakur Stevenson.betting sites top 101 Made a very good fighter look average.

Thought the odds were way too wide but Stevenson showed his class and why oddsmakers overpriced him confidently and correctly. — Jim Karas (@BoxingFreak247) April 21, 2019 /**/ /**/ This Shakur Stevenson looks class — Kerrod (@AKerrod) April 21, 2019 /**/ /**/ @ShakurStevenson will wash any featherweight in the division — Nothing Nice (@UursTrulyTheBoi) April 21, 2019 /**/ /**/ Stevenson picked his spots, read his opponents attacks and had explosive combinations that left fans in awe of his ability. He stated in a pre-fight interview that he is very interested in fighting the likes of Lee Selby, Josh Warrington and Carl Frampton in the near future, but his manager and all-time great Andre Ward is hoping to take a measured approach.

Still, judging by this performance, Stevenson will be in the world title mix sooner rather than later. In his post-fight interview, Stevenson even went as far to call himself ‘the next Mayweather’. ” ” Wladimir Klitschko could be set for a sensational return to boxing after promoter Eddie Hearn revealed talks have taken place over a ?76million deal with DAZN.
