Shakur Stevenson has a professional boxing record of 21-0 with 10 KOs, but he has been receiving a lot of criticism for his recent performance. In addition, Stephen Espinoza also recently threw shade at Stevenson, but for a completely different reason.


Stevenson recently defeated Edwin De Los Santos at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for the WBC Lightweight Championship. Subsequently, Shakur Stevenson became a three-division champion via unanimous decision after the 12-round bout.

However, Stevenson has been receiving a lot of criticism for his lackluster performance in his last fight. In addition, in Espinoza’s recent tweet, Stevenson is further humiliated by Espinoza for fake betting. Espinoza stated:

Fraud alert: ‘Log In To Place Bet’.

Espinoza had retweeted Stevenson’s tweet, which showed that Stevenson was about to place an online bet. Furthermore, the bet was placed for the fights on the David Benavidez vs. Demetrius Andrade card and amounted to $15,235. Stevenson had posted two separate screenshots that showed the various fighters he was betting on winning.


In addition, Stevenson proudly proclaimed in the caption that most people don’t know anything about boxing. Hence, Stevenson wanted to imply that his bets were going to win, however, he had not even placed them.

Fans react to Shakur Stevenson’s fake betting

Espinoza is the President of Sports and Event Programming for Showtime Networks Inc., a position he has held since 2011. Furthermore, Espinoza is involved in overseeing the development and execution of Showtime’s sports programming, including boxing events.

Hence, Espinoza calling out Stevenson for fake betting has brought a lot of attention to this. Subsequently, fans have been trolling Stevenson for clout-chasing when he isn’t even placing a bet on the fights.

Fans hilariously trolled Stevenson for pretending like he is making a bet when he hasn’t even logged in. Furthermore, fans also found it hilarious that ShowTime’s president, Espinoza, is also now trolling Stevenson.
