Promoter Bob Arum expressed his desire to see former WBO and WBC featherweight title holder Shakur Stevenson, who recently transitioned to the lightweight category, fight the victor of the showdown between current lightweight champion Devin Haney and Vasyl Lomachenko.
"You know what we think about Shakur and that he’s on the pound-for-pound list as one of the great fighters today. So if Shakur beats the Japanese, and it’s going to be a tough fight, then our plan would be to match Shakur against the winner of Haney-Lomachenko. That’s another massive fight.
Yeah, the plan is to have him [Stevenson] fight the Haney-Loma winner. If Haney wins, he’s talking about going to 140. So that makes a vacant title for Shakur. But if Loma wins, that’s a fight between Loma and Shakur that I would pay all kinds of money to watch. That’s really an unbelievable fight,” Aruma was quoted as saying by Boxing News 24/7.
