Shakur Stevenson, super featherweight champion WBO, assured that he prefers to fight against the Mexican Oscar Valdez what against Vasily Lomachenko, since the Mexican is still undefeated in his career and they could unify the belts.
“We see to lomachenko lose twice”, he said in an interview with Boxing Insider. “He beat a lot of great fighters, but did we see him lose twice? Yes right? How many times have we seen losing Valdez? We’ve never seen him lose before.”
Similarly, the American sees the battle against the super featherweight champion of the WBC.
“Valdez had a great performance with (Miguel) Berchelt, knocked him out and Valdez has never been defeated. We see to (lomachenko) enter the ring with Theophimus and he seemed a little scared,” he recalled.
Stevenson does not close the door to confront lomachenko, but he prefers to fight against the Mexican monarch Oscar Valdez It would be a great fight for both of them as they are at the peak of their careers.
“Valdez He has never lost, I have never lost. I am reaching the best moment of my career, he is in the best moment of his career. The best against the best”, he argued.

Before his 2021 fight against Jeremiah Nakathila, Stevenson already clamoring for a fight against Oscar Valdez.
“Valdez and I are the biggest fight there is at 130″, he told ESPN. “He is a hungry young lion, undefeated. I am a hungry young lion, also undefeated, never lost before. He is at his best. I am advancing to my best moment. I feel like that has to be next. It’s been a long time,” he added.
