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.

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!

In the main event. Eleider Alvarez stunned Sergey Kovalev (and just about everyone) with a round 7 knockout to win the WBO light heavyweight championship.
All videos are from my Sports Talk With Troy YouTube.
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 Pound for Pound top 9 for September 2017 I am only looking at matches from between 9/1/2015 and 9/1/2017 I am considering level of competition and performance. These rankings do not take into account anything before 9/1/2015. This is not a career achievement list. This list dose not reflect my opinion of who I think will win future matchups. Like any and all Top 10 Lists. It is subjective, but I fell that I have a set of rules to guide me. 1.Terence Crawford. Picking Crawford is easy. You can’t expect that every championship opponent be a world beater, but there is a minimum. All of Crawford’s opponents at least meet the minimum. Viktor Postol & Julius Indongo are world beaters. Maybe (my highest compliment) Career Definers. He’s been more dominant and against better overall competition than anyone else. It’s not close. His 3rd round knockout of Julius Indongo raised the bar even higher. 2.Keith Thurman I keep flipping between Canelo Alvarez and Keith Thurman. I fell that both Shawn Porter & Danny Garcia are both top of the line boxers. I think Luis Collazo meets the minimum, but I’m on the fence with him. He beat and deserved the wins over Porter and Garcia, but not in the way that Crawford has been doing. 3. Canelo Alvarez I had Canelo at #5 in my past rankings, but after taking a closer look at who he fought and who those above him have fought. I have to move him up. 155 is a good weight for Miguel Cotto. It’s just one pound over the light middleweight limit where Cotto is at his best. Amir Khan is a very good boxer, but has well known chin issues. Khan did outbox and expose flaws Canleo for 5 rounds before the fight ended in the 6th round. Liam Smith was the defending champion. I think overall Julio Cesar Chavez Jr is underrated, but by the time they fought I think he is on the debatable side of meeting the minimum. 4. Andre Ward If You want to know why I have Ward at #4 and not #1? Alexander Brand.. That’s why. Alexander Brand should not have been in a fight with Andre Ward, or any other top boxer. He’s the wort opponent of anyone on this list. Ward’s two wins over Sergey Kovalev. Although I personally think he should have won the first time by complete domination, and not by subjective it could have gone either way. His win over Sullivan Barrera Is looking better and better. It doesn’t hurt That Vasyl Lomachenko fought Miguel Marriaga (Who yes is a better boxer than Alexander Brand) who was coming off a loss. 5. Vasyl Lomachenko. Lomachenko’s fight against Miguel Marriaga who was coming off a losss kind of derailed some good momentum that he had been building. Roman Martinez came into the fight as a champion. Nicholas Walters was supposed to give him a test or even beat him and Jason Sosa had been a champion, which he did not lose as a result of a loss. Outside of Crawford I don’t think anyone has looked better against high quality opponents. However, those wins are sandwiched between Miguel Marriaga and Romulo Koasicha 6. Gennady Golovkin. GGG’s resume is not as bad as his critics say it is. David Lemieux took two early losses. He might not be a world beater, but he much better than the minimum. I think the jury I still out on Dominic Wade. Kell Brook had to come up two weight classes, which hurts Golovkin’s ranking, but he’s a very good boxer. The Daniel Jacobs was a Career Definer, but he barely beat him. 7. Anthony Joshua. Joshua has been on really good run as WBA/IBF Heavyweight Champion. It might not have been an easy win, but knocking out Wladimir Klitschko for now ends the debate as to who the best heavyweight in the world is. He also has good wins over Dillian Whyte, Charles Martin, Dominic Breazeale and Eric Molina 8.Mikey Garcia. When it comes to “eye-test” talent I think Garcia is as good as anyone. However this list is about, and that’s not why he’s here. He’s here because he beat Adrien Broner who I fell is a very good boxer and before that Dejan Zlaticanin who was on a pretty good run. Garcia’s win over Broner says more about Garcia than it does about Broner 9. Errol Spence Jr. Yes I’m ranking a boxer with only one championship fight under his belt in my pound for pound top 10. Why? Because he deserves it. Chris Algieri in my opinion meets the minimum standard and I think Leonard Bundu does as well. Going to their fight a lot of people who know a thing or two about boxing felt that Kell Brook was the best welterweight in the world. While I don’t agree with that the fight was in Brook’s home town of Sheffield England. To go into an established and respected champion’s back yard and take his championship says something to do so in your first championship fight says even more.
