I think Smith’s most likely options are The winner of Eleider Alvarez & Michael Seals who fight for the vacant WBC/Continental Americas Light Heavyweight championship on ESPN+ next week or Former WBO Super Middleweight champion Gilberto Ramirez for the Vacant WBO Light Heavyweight championship that Canelo Alvarez vacated.
What’s Next For Shakur Stevenson After Beating Joet Gonzalez? Shakur Stevenson, who won the Silver medal at the 2016 Olympics becomes WBO Featherweight champion with an impressive 12 round decision over Joet Gonzalez? I felt that his performance reminded me of Floyd Mayweather at 147 & 154. I think Stevenson has all the talent and potential in the world. Like Mayweather, he picked his spots, was very efficient with his punches. Like Mayweather at 147 & 154, he might not have knockout power, but he does have enough pop in his punches to make opponents think twice. Mayweather was at the end of his career and from 130-140 While he was never a KO Artist. He had decent power. I think at 126 & 130 Stevenson is going to be just fine. However at 135 & 140 where his opponents are going to be stronger. If he doesn’t at least matain his Make you think twice power. I think someone could stop him in the late rounds. This is just an observation and opinion and these concerns won’t suffice for a few years if at all. Anyways this is more about Shakur Stevenson’s inmate future. Where the newly crowned WBO Featherweight Champion has a lot of options. He called out IBF Champion Josh Warrington there are some obstacles but it is a makeable fight. The top contenders for the WBO Championship are Michael Conlan, Jessie Magdaleno & Carl Frampton. All three are Top Rank/ESPN boxers. WBO Super Bantamweight Champion is Emanuel Navarrete & The WBO Super Featherweight Champion is Jamel Herring. Both are also Top Rank/ESPN boxers. So basically Shakur Stevenson has options.

Originally Posted To My YouTube Channel Sports Talk With Troy Anthony Joshua Andy Ruiz Rematch Announced, But Not Agreed On! Back in June Andy Ruiz Jr. Shocked the world and upset Anthony Joshua to win the WBA, WBO & IBF Heavyweight Championships. His contract had a rematch clause that favored than champion Joshua. It was announced by Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing that the rematch will take place on December 7th in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia. However, despite the rematch clause, Ruiz has not agreed to these terms. The question is who has the most leverage? Joshua has the contract that Ruiz agreed to, Ruiz has 3 of 4 Heavyweight Championships. Who has the most to lose? If Ruiz refuses the current terms? I am of the opinion that one way or another Joshua is fighting on Dec 7th in Saudi Arabia.with at least one if not all three of the A Heavyweight Championships he lost to Ruiz in June on the line. If it’s not against Ruiz don’t be surprised if it’s against Oleksandr Usyk who is the #1 contender with the WBO and a Matchroom fighter. If Ruiz holds his position. He is promoted through the PBC and as long as Deontay Wilder wins his rematches with Luis Ortiz & Tyson Fury. He should get a shot at WBC Champion Wilder.
Manny Pacquiao vs Keith Thurman Preview! Manny (Pac-Man) Pacquiao and Keith (One Time) Thurman both who hold a share of the WBA welterweight championship square off against each other tonight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas Nevada. Pacquiao comes into the fight with a record of 61-7-2. 39 wins by stoppage and has been stopped twice. Thurman enters the ring at 29-0 with 22 stoppage wins. The winner is very likely to face the winner of Errol (The Truth Spence) & Shawn (Showtime) Porter who are set to meet in September.
Vasiliy Lomachenko vs Anthony Crolla In April! After Richard Commey had to deal with a hand injury suffered when he beat Isa Chaniev to win the IBF lightweight championship. Top WBC contender Anthony Crolla is now the opponent for WBC & WBO lightweight champion Vasiliy Lomachenko. They will fight April 12th At the Staples Center, in Los Angeles CA. The bout will be broadcast by ESPN.
Jermall Charlo will defend his WBC Middleweight Championship (Canelo Alvarez also has a claim to the WBC Championship because boxing that’s why). Against Matt or Matvey Korobov. Korobov is a last-second replacement for Willie Monroe Jr. Combining the facts that Korobov is a good boxer and he is a last-second replacement. I think an upset is a real possibility. I still think Charlo will win, but don’t be shocked if we have a new WBC Middleweight Champion.
Vasiliy Lomachenko beat Jose Pedraza to add the WBO lightweight championship to his WBA lightweight championship. So what is next for Lomachenko? Will he face the winner of a possible Richard Commey/Isa Chaniev fight for the IBF championship? I personally fell his options at lightweight are limited and will need Alberto Machado, Gervonta Davis & Miguel Berchelt to move up from super featherweight. He may need to move up in weight sooner rather than later. That includes for a possible matchup with Mikey Garcia. Please Subscribe to Sports Talk With Troy!

Is Vasyl Lomachenko An ATG? When he stopped Jorge Linares in the 10th round to become WBA lightweight champion. Vasyl Lomachenko won his third world championship in three weight classes. That in and in its self is an accomplishment. The fact that he did it in fewer fights than anyone else is even more of an accomplishment. Does this mean that after just 12 professional boxing matches Lomachenko is among the all-time greats?
My 2 cents (ok maybe more) 1. I scored the fight 8-4 for GGG. I think anything from that to 7-5 favoring Canelo is with in reason. 2. I think Canelo was strongest in the early rounds, and GGG came on in the latter rounds. 4. I had it 3-3 after 6 rounds, but it could have been 6-0 Canelo. I had the second half of the fight 5-1 GGG, but I think a round or two maybe, could have gone to Canelo. (I might have to revise my opinion of scores that I think are within reason to include 8-4 Canelo). 5. I think Canelo’s early movement and body attack keept GGG honest and prevented a body attack in the early rounds. 6. I thought once GGG found his range he started to hurt Canelo. Not enough to drop him, but as the fight progressed he was doing better than Canelo. I think an early round body attack would have set things up. (see thought 5.) 7. Even considering the knockdown. I think Daniel Jacobs did a better job against GGG than Canelo did. I felt that even considering the knockdown, Jacobs had a better argument for winning after 12 rounds than Canelo did. I think Jacobs gives both GGG and Canelo problems that GGG and Canelo don’t give each other, and is a 50/50 fight with either. 8. They are likely to rematch (May 2018). Both Canelo and GGG have too much pride not to. Even though I thought GGG won. I don’t know what changes Canelo should make. I thought he fought a smart fight. I think GGG has to step things up from the start. He has to use a body attack to slow the younger/faster Canelo down. 9. If the rematch is a reset, and the first round is the first round of the second fight. I’m expecting the action in the ring to be very much like the first fight. A close fight that could go either way. If it’s “round 13” . Than I think GGG has momentum and I think he wins with in 8 rounds. 10. I think that what we saw take place in the ring lived up to the hype, but the 118-110 scorecard leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
