Malignaggi named the best lightweight in the world

Former world boxing champion, now expert and commentator Shakur Stevenson believes that at the moment the best lightweight on the planet is WBC titleholder Shakur Stevenson.

"For me, Shakur Stevenson is the best lightweight fighter. Of course, Gervonta Davis fights more exciting. Lomachenko was amazing in peak form. I get it, but the best is still Shakur.

For anyone who thinks Stevenson is boring - you better find at least one person capable of beating him. Shakur won almost all rounds in his career," Malignaggi said in an interview with Seconds Out.

Recall that last weekend Stevenson successfully defended his title by defeating Artem Harutyunyan by unanimous decision of the judges.
