Few boxers in the world today hold as much promise as Shakur Stevenson. With an impressive 22-0 record since his professional debut in 2017, Stevenson currently reigns as the WBC lightweight world champion. However, despite his accomplishments, fans often label him a “boring fighter.” Why? The answer lies in the contrasting styles of Stevenson and Gervonta Davis, the WBA lightweight champion.

The Defensive Surgeon vs. The Knockout Artist

Shakur Stevenson’s surgical style is characterized by defensive prowess. His ability to avoid punches and read opponents is exceptional, thanks to his “God-given eyes.” In his own words, he can “see really well” and knows how to evade incoming blows. However, this defensive approach sometimes leads fans to perceive him as less exciting.

On the other hand, Gervonta “Tank” Davis is celebrated for his explosive power. With a 30-0 record and 28 knockouts, Davis possesses a God-given ability to put opponents down when he lands a clean shot. His aggressive style captivates fans, earning him praise as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the sport.

The Main Difference Between Shakur Stevenson and Gervonta Davis

Shakur Stevenson acknowledges that fans evaluate his performances based on the Davis scale. When Davis lands a punch, it often results in a knockout. In contrast, Stevenson’s 10 knockouts in 22 fights don’t match Davis’ highlight-reel finishes. Consequently, fans tend to hold Davis in higher regard.

Timothy Bradley’s Take

Former world champion Timothy Bradley emphasizes that comparing Stevenson and Davis is futile. Their distinct styles make them incomparable. While Davis seeks explosive knockouts, Stevenson relies on defensive finesse. As Bradley puts it, “styles make fights.” What works for one won’t necessarily work for the other.

In the end, both fighters have their unique abilities, and fans’ preferences shape their perception. Stevenson’s mastery lies in evading danger, while Davis thrives on delivering it. Perhaps it’s time we appreciate both styles for what they bring to the ring.
