“My goal is to take over boxing.” – Shakur Stevenson
HBO Sports shot another episode of The Fight Game with Jim Lampley and we helped with the sit-down interviews with Melissa Stark and slo-mo shots. This episode was all about Shakur Stevenson, 19-year-old boxing prodigy. He grew up in Newark, NJ, one of the most dangerous cities in the U.S., but stayed off the streets and in his grandfather’s boxing gym. He worked hard, surrounded himself with a great team and quickly began winning… repeatedly. He brought home the silver in last year’s Rio Olympics. His next fight will be at Madison Square Garden. We wish him the best of luck!
