Fans’ reactions when they saw Floyd Mayweather and two other unbeaten P4P champs posing with Shakur Stevenson backstage before the fight: “Tank not gonna like this”


On Thursday, November 16, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Shakur Stevenson and Edwin de los Santos squared off for the opportunity to capture the unclaimed lightweight world title held by the WBC.

Floyd Mayweather, Terence Crawford, and Andre Ward entered the dressing room of Adonis Stevenson just a few moments before the start of the fight. Stevenson was joined in the room by these three boxing legends. Before ‘Sugar’ entered the ring, the four boxers came together to celebrate a momentous occasion. Collectively, they had amassed 142 victories in their professional boxing careers, and none of them had ever been vanquished.

Crawford posted the photograph to Instagram with the following caption:

“Four generations of #1 P4P all in one picture!!! ” “Four generations of #1 P4P all in one picture!” @shakurstevenson @andresogward @floydmayweather” “@shakurstevenson @andresogward”

In 2019, Shakur Stevenson defeated Joet Gonzalez to win the WBO featherweight title. The following year, in 2021, he defeated Jamel Herring to win the WBO super featherweight title. Now, Stevenson is competing for the third WBC title, a move that was caused by the fact that Devin Haney moved up in weight class in order to fight Regis Prograis for the super lightweight gold. Stevenson’s opponent for the third WBC title is Regis Prograis.

Edwin de los Santos, meantime, won three matches in a row after suffering a loss by split decision to William Foster III in January 2022. These victories helped Edwin de los Santos bounce back from the defeat. After standing in for Frank Martin in a previous battle, this will be de los Santos’ first title fight. He is rising to the challenge after being given the opportunity.
