Shakur Stevenson- ‘The Fearless’ boxer

Shakur Stevenson has several mentors in his boxing career. From Andre Ward to Floyd Mayweather, he picks up suggestions from the very best boxers. However, his trainers are Waki Moses and Kay Koroma. Per Stevenson, Kay Koroma has been his trainer since the Olympic days.

The relationship between a boxer and a trainer plays a pivotal role to nourish the journey ahead. Fortunately, Stevenson shared a healthy bond with his coaches and has been pretty successful in an active career of four years. In a chat with ESPN from the past, ‘Fearless’ had revealed how Koroma infused a tough regime for him in the initial stage of his career.

Koroma reportedly formed a weekend routine, where he would end up working on a Friday to drive 174 miles for Shakur Stevenson. However, the world champion’s new regime looks absolutely professional.
