Will Shakur Stevenson beat Jamel Herring? | DAZN News US

The DAZN Boxing Show discussed the forthcoming clash with Jamel Herring and Shakur Stevenson.

Ak and Barak considered who would win the forthcoming clash with Jamel Herring and Shakur Stevenson.

Herring will face Stevenson to defend his WBO junior lightweight title, with the 24-year-old WBO interim champion looking to win his next title.

Stevenson previously held the WBO featherweight championship and is moving up a division. 

The two will meet on October 23 as Herring moves on from his last fight, a win over Carl Frampton which sent the Irishman into retirement.

Speaking on the DAZN Boxing Show, Barak Bess said: “You got the older guy who's towards the end of his career, but he's in that new camp over there with Bo Mack and the rest of that Crawford crew. 

“And he's turned his whole life around. But he's up against that young savage, the guy who it doesn't look like there's a blueprint to beat him. You know, what do you think of his chances?”

Akin ‘Ak’ Reyes added:  “It looks like a man after his last performance against one of the greatest Irish fighters of all time, you got to say he has a lot left.

“They're obviously both close to Crawford. They've trained together. I'm pretty sure they've trained together.

“So there has to be some level of comfort, Herring knowing Shakur the way he does, watching him train, seeing what he's done in a gym watching his habits, sparring with him. 

“He's fighting a young, great fighter, in my opinion, who is gonna win multiple world championships. In Stevenson, I guess, he has an advantage compared to the other fighters, Shakur needs to be, I guess, leery of that. 

“But listen, I think this fight is gonna end up, I'm not making predictions. I know I do that a lot. Sometimes I do it really early for the fight. But I like the fact that both guys are southpaws. I think Herring is gonna give Shakur all he can handle, but I'm glad the fight is announced. You know, we need fights like this.

“Yeah, no doubt. No doubt. Shakur is not a champion at 130 pounds.
