Edwin De Los Santos: “I want to thank Top Rank, the WBC, ESPN and my promoter, Sampson Lewkowicz, for this opportunity to put on a great fight and win my first world championship. I am a proud Dominican warrior who fights for my people! Shakira, I’m going to kick your ass.”

9:1 favorite Stevenson doesn’t seen too worried.

Shakur Stevenson: “Edwin De Los Santos is a good fighter and he’s going to come to fight. I give him credit for actually taking this fight when so many other so-called ‘fighters’ ran from it. I’m the biggest boogeyman in boxing, and on November 16, the world will see why when I put on another great performance for the fans. Come out to T-Mobile Arena or tune in to ESPN and watch me become a three-division world champion.”

  • Haney is the biggest boogeyman by far. You were offered a lot more money, to fight Haney for undisputed, than you will get for this fight. Shows fighters need to make a lot of money to be willing to step in with Haney no matter how many belts on the line.
    Seems Santos will be a tougher fight than Martin but Shakir is top class and will outclass Santos. SS may can even stop him.
    If you call your opponent “Shakira” it means you better win. Something tells me he will be humbled by the end of this fight.
    Im pulling for our Newark representative but hoping he moves better and spend less time playing himself on social media.

      • De los Santos called him Shakira because santos is nervous
        He knows how hard is shakur if he be really confident would not say anything

    • You honestly can’t be peddling Haney as the the boogeyman. Really? He is almost scared of his own shadow. No fan of Shakur, but he beats Haney all day. Haney damn near ran out the ring after the Loma fight then got booed all the way home.

    • It’s honorable to back your fighter, but to go to unrealistic lengths to argue your beliefs is just a…..ahhhhh you almost got us. We know you’re joking. That was funny.

  • Edwin has only a punchers chance and Shakur is very hard to catch clean with single shots, less a combo but thats even harder.

  • I expect a Stevenson UD victory, PERO Stevenson better not underestimate De Los Santos (DLS) because I have feeling DLS will bring it (especially during the early rounds).

  • First step for Shakur to get into the mix, because once he gets a belt, he can bring something to the table to lure the big dogs for a fight against him. I don’t see any chance to get Haney, but for sure Gervonta or Lomachenko. Anyway, Shakur has a long and bumpy road ahead, but he has the tools to emerge victorious. De Los Santos better be prepared:)

  • Easy path to 3 weight champ status, “Shakira” will box his ears off “whenever, wherever”

  • I would never want to watch a Shakur vs. Devin Haney fight. That would be so boring! I would, however, like to see either one vs. Gervonta Davis.

  • shouldnt the boogeyman come with some pop??? nobody in the history of the fight game been scared of a feather fist hahahahaha
