Ex-featherweight champion (up to 57.2 kg), American Shakur Stevenson (14-0-0, 8 KO) gave a bold forecast for a possible fight with British ex-champion in two weights Carl Frampton (28-2-0, 16 KO ).
“I don’t know yet what the WBO will do if Jamel gives up the title. They’ll probably put me up against one of the ratings. But I think I’ll beat the shit out of Carl Frampton. I don’t think this would last longer than seven rounds Although he is a good fighter, respect him.
But there are levels in this game, and, as for me, I’m on a different level from Frampton. I am young, strong, fast and smart. And I will become a real nightmare for him in the ring, “said Stevenson.
