What’s Next For Shakur Stevenson After Beating Joet Gonzalez?

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.
