1. Shakur Stevenson

Stevenson represented America in the 2016 Olympic Games winning a silver medal in the bantamweight division. As a professional he is signed to Bob Arum’s Top Rank promotion with former unified super-middleweight and light-heavyweight champion Andre Ward managing the prospect. Stevenson has four wins by knockout and three coming by points in his seven professional bout. The southpaw was dubbed as “the next Mayweather” and was scouted by Floyd Mayweather himself at the Olympic Games.
