In an explosive exclusive interview, speaking to Marc Gatford via the blog, unbeaten American prospect Shakur Stevenson reveals his plans for Carl Frampton, ahead of his matchup with Toka Khan Clary on December 12.

“His punk a** doesn’t want to fight me, that dude, I think he’s scared to fight me. If he comes through [against] Herring I’m going to f** him up.

“I don’t think he’ll fight me, I think even if he wins he was talking about retiring, I don’t think he really wants to fight me.”

“I would love to come to the lions den in Belfast and beat-up on Frampton. I’d love to be the person to retire Frampton.”

“Frampton has got the perfect style for me, the sit back and box, looking for hard, big punches – that shit won’t work. Over the course of the fight, I’ll stop him.”

“I think Jamel will beat Frampton, I think Frampton is too small. I think Jamel will out box him and use his reach and range against Frampton, I can’t see him finding a way to hit or reach Jamel. Herring is a really big 130-pounder.”

“I haven’t forgotten about [Josh] Warrington, I don’t think he’ll be at 126 for too much longer. I think Warrington is a decent fighter, better than people give him credit for. He’s a pressure fighter but he’s made for me as a boxer.”

“Tune in December 12, i’m going to put on an amazing performance and i’m going to show why everybody believes why i’m one of the best young fighters in the sports. It’s going to be fireworks.”
