Newly minted WBC lightweight champion Shakur Stevenson [pictured] tweets about his uninspired title-winning performance against Edwin De Los Santos: "[I] wasn’t 100 percent tonight. No excuses but anybody with two eyes knows the real [deal]. But look... one day they [are] with you, [the] next day they hate. I love it. 21-0... see y’all next time out. Oh yeah, if you don’t wanna watch, don’t f*cking watch. Y’all can’t break me and a bad night don’t make me."\
World lightweight champion Devin Haney was definitely not impressed with Stevenson's performance, tweeting: "[I] should’ve offered this bum 10% [to fight me]. I was being too generous [offering him 25% which Stevenson turned down]. Stop that 'scared' narrative.. nobody was ever scared of that bum! He wanted clout!! That’s all they use my name for!"
