In the fast-paced world of boxing, verbal jabs can sometimes pack as much punch as the ones thrown in the ring. The latest bout of verbal sparring comes from none other than Devin Haney and Gervonta Davis, two titans in the sport known for their skills both inside and outside the ropes.

After Devin Haney took to social media, expressing his opinion on the recent Shakur Stevensonvs. Edwin De Los Santos match, Gervonta Davis wasted no time in firing back. Although Stevenson admits to a disappointing performance, even going so far as to apologize, ‘Sugar’s Camp is not having it. In the end, a historical win is a historical win. Furthermore, issuing a unanimous decision, the prevalent rhetoric typically involves one side alleging a robbery by the other. Without mincing words, Tank steps in for his friend.

It seems like Devin Haney is not going to let a bout with Stevenson go. Commenting on the performance he chose after walking away from Haney’s 75/25 offer, In a classic display of boxing banter, Haney remarked, “Should’ve offered this Bum 10% I was being too generous!” 

Additionally, Haney’s other rival, Gervonta Davis, and a friend of Stevenson stepped in immediately. In a now-deleted tweet, not one to back down, Davis swiftly responded, “That’s what I’m offering you, son son.”

Moreover, the exchange immediately caught the attention of fans and fellow fighters alike, setting the stage for what could be the next big showdown, not in the ring, but in the world of words. While the boxing world is no stranger to trash talk, the simplicity and directness of this exchange make it stand out.

In assessing the recent bout, it becomes apparent that the term “bad fight” is not an exaggeration. Subsequently, the dissatisfaction echoed audibly through the crowd, with boos persisting from late in the first round and persisting throughout the match. The lackluster nature of the bout left the audience with little to cheer about.

Shakur Stevenson, the victor of the less-than-thrilling contest, acknowledged the lackluster nature of his performance. “I really don’t care about being a three-division champion,” he stated candidly. “I had a bad performance tonight; that’s all I’m really focused on. I wasn’t feeling too good. I’ll live with it; it’s OK. I came here, got the victory, and that’s all I wanted to do.”

Consequently, Stevenson shrugged off inquiries about a possible issue with his left hand, firmly rejecting any excuses. He acknowledged the challenges fighters face. Additionally, he expressed that despite not feeling well before the fight, he remained focused on securing victory, emphasizing a commitment to adapting his strategy if necessary.

Despite his own dissatisfaction with the performance, Stevenson acknowledged the strengths of his opponent, De Los Santos (16-2, 14 KO). “He’s got some punching power. He’s got good little defense, and he’s a little tricky. He grabbed on the inside and stopped me from punching. He’s a good fighter.”

Looking forward, Shakur declined to specify future opponents. He expressed a desire to address the aspects of his performance that fell short. Furthermore, he leaves the door open for improvement in his future appearances in the ring.

Lastly, one takeaway from the bouts this year is the common theme of the more famous bruiser, completely underestimating their opponents. Moreover, it probably led to a lack of preparation and overconfidence. If you recall, in the Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou bout, Fury underestimated his opponent. Even though he was the victor, it was a wake-up call for the pugilist. Moreover, Ngannou injured Fury well enough for him to make the decision to postpone his bout against Oleksandr Usyk in December.
