Shakur Stevenson has revealed he has had a slight change of heart regarding his scoring of the fight between Devin Haney vs Vasiliy Lomachenko this past weekend.
Initially after the contest, Stevenson entered the ring and told an interviewer that he felt Lomachenko was a clear winner and was hard done by not to get the decision.
However, the 25 year old Newark native has since told the Stamina For Sale podcast that he has rewatched the fight and believes it should have either been a draw or a very narrow Lomachenko win.
“I just went back and rewatched it, and I came up with a different score than I had the last time.”
“Honestly, I feel like it was either a draw or 7-5 Lomachenko. But I had 8-4 Lomachenko at the fight.”
It is perhaps unsurprising the Olympic silver medalist has already watched the bout twice, as he could be next in line for a shot at undisputed lightweight champion Haney.
Stevenson is already a world champion at featherweight and super featherweight, and many in the sport feel it is only a matter of time before he adds (perhaps multiple) straps at 135lbs to his collection.
He announced his arrival to the division with a dominant performance over Shuichiro Yoshino last month in front of a hometown crowd, which culminated in referee Allen Huggins waving the bout off in the sixth round.
It remains unclear as of yet whether or not Stevenson’s shot at world honours will come against Haney, with some expecting ‘The Dream’ to vacate his four titles and move up in weight to light welterweight.
