Shakur Stevenson is the next target in Ryan Garcia’s ongoing feud, which he is trying to carry out with as many notable lightweights as possible.
During an interview with Fight Hub TV, Garcia ripped on Stevenson, calling him “arrogant.” Stevenson was criticized by a lot of fans and pundits alike for his weak performance against Edwin De Los Santos in his most recent fight, despite the fact that he was successful in gaining the victory.
It was said by Ryan Garcia:
“[Stevenson] comes across as the most pretentious piece of s. Since the amateurs, he’s been acting as though his s doesn’t stink whenever he walks around. It really gets under my skin… You don’t have to act like that, bro; we’re all just trying to figure out what the hell is going on.

“King Ryan” continued his rant about Shakur Stevenson’s fight and indicated that he was unhappy with the way the fight was covered on ESPN. He continued:
“[The program] is filled with so much bias. The commentary stinks to high heaven. If Shakur doesn’t throw enough punches, it’s because he’s in charge of the fight; if someone else doesn’t throw a lot of punches, it’s because ‘oh man, he’s reluctant.’ I can’t even watch fights on ESPN anymore because the coverage is so one-sided.
According to the comments made by Garcia, Stevenson only landed a total of 65 blows during the entire twelve rounds of the battle. Stevenson won the fight by a unanimous decision after De Los Santos only managed to score 40 points in total.
Since then, Stevenson has tweeted in response to Garcia, saying:
“Nigga. ” I wasn’t trying to sound pompous, and I don’t give a damn about you clown asses, niggas… My bad evenings, I win on your bad nights when you lay down after a body shot and rise up after the 10 counts. “
Ryan Garcia’s next fight
In Ryan Garcia’s most recent fight, which was against Gervonta Davis, he was defeated for the first time in his professional career. Since then, the rising young star has been sidelined.
There was some speculation that Garcia will face Davis again, but the bout will not take place in the near future. The rematch could take place at some point in the future, though. The fight between Garcia and Oscar Duarte is presently slated to take place on December 2, 2023.
