Pros react, and Shakur Stevenson apologizes for performance


Shakur Stevenson got the win tonight over Jeremiah Nakathila, but those talking about the fight have been pretty harshly critical of the bout as entertainment.

Stevenson admitted post-fight on ESPN+ that he wasn’t happy with his own performance, and took to Twitter quickly after that to send an apology to fans:

As I said in the post-fight recap, I do think more will be made of how dull this was than it’s really worth, but media — I’m including us — gotta talk about something. I’m choosing the arrogant stance where I’m soOoOOOOOOOoooOoo much smarter than everyone. (Please don’t look up some of my terrible fight predictions.)

Realistically, if Stevenson goes out and gets a fight with Oscar Valdez or Jamel Herring, wins clean and clear, and picks up a belt at 130, this will mostly be forgotten. But it’s kind of nice to see him acknowledge that this was not the best showing, even though he did what he had to do, won every round, etc. It was boring as hell to watch, but it’s probably not worth thinking about

There frankly wasn’t much chatter otherwise, but there were a few Tweets out there from pros, and people like these posts for whatever reason, so here you go:
