“I would’ve beat the hell outta him”: Shakur Stevenson claps back at Isaac Cruz for ducking potential boxing bout

In his most recent boxing bout, Shakur Stevenson easily defeated Shuichiro Yoshino. Shakur yet believes that if he had fought Isaac Cruz in the ring, who was his original opponent instead of Yoshino, he would have still won.

On April 8, Yoshino and Shakur Stevenson squared off in the main event of a boxing extravaganza at the Prudential Center in New Jersey that was aired on ESPN. In the headliner on ESPN, the hometown hero impressed the Newark audience by dominating the Japanese boxer by technical knockout in round six. 

What does Shakur Stevenson have to say regarding Isaac Cruz? 

When facing Shakur, the 31-year-old Japanese boxer fell short of his goal of extending his winning run to 17. The American fighter, though, is still a little disappointed that he was unable to meet Isaac as previously anticipated. 

Shakur became frustrated when Pitbull withdrew from the bout at the last minute. Stevenson may have been even more angered by Isaac’s decision to pull out because Team Cruz claimed that Shakur had a defensive fighting style that makes a bout boring, which is what they did not want to have. 

The former two-division world champion Stevenson, though, took a shot at the Mexican boxer after once again demonstrating his boxing prowess in the ring against the Japanese. The New Jersey fighter has taken aim at Isaac, claiming that Isaac avoided fighting him like a coward. 

“Pitbull don’t want no smoke. I been right there in front of everybody. I don’t run and I would’ve beat the hell outta him. He too little. Little dude can’t do nothing with me.” said Shakur.

Shakur is now shooting for the stars and eager to land fights with formidable opponents. Devin Haney or Gervonta Davis, who should Shakur Stevenson face next? Let us know what you think by leaving a comment.
