The end of the Floyd Mayweather Jr. era with all its greatness, is very interesting to guess who the American talents will become the new megastar?
The 42-year-old Mayweather decided to retire from the boxing ring. Despite hanging boxing gloves, the figure nicknamed The Money was still actively fighting in another ring. He accepted the challenge of fighting with UFC star Conor McGregor and an exhibition match against kickboxer athlete, Tenshin Nasukawa.
The name of Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez from Mexico was predicted to be able to carry on the big-name Mayweather Jr. from mainland America. But are there new stars from the lower division who will be the best in America? The following names are predicted to be the successor to Mayweather in the lower division.
Devin Haney (22-0, Lightweight)
Devin Haney becomes the new ace that sticks out his name in the boxing ring in the US. He will take the ring against Zaur Abdullaev in the WBC Lightweight elimination battle this weekend.
Growing up in Oakland, California – the Andre Ward area – Devin Haney had the confidence to follow in the footsteps of his colleague’s success.
Haney moved from Oakland to Las Vegas to improve his fist career. With a record of 22 times unbeaten, Haney is right to join the promoter, Eddie Hearn.
Jaron Ennis (23-0, Welter Class)
Guided by the best talent scout in Boxing, Cameron Dunkin, a Philadelphia boxer, Jaron Ennis is confident he can change his destiny in boxing.
His flashy record, unbeaten 23 times in the Welter Class, is capital for Ennis to be able to match Kelly Pavlik, Terrence Crawford, and Tim Bradley. Win 21 knockouts in 23 battles. Ennis will become a future king in the Welter Class of 66.6 kg in the future.
Shakur Stevenson (12-0, Featherweight)
The New Jersey young boxer stole the attention of the American public when he won the silver medal at the 2016 Olympics. The success of Shakur will be the opening of other amateur boxers to follow in his footsteps of success.
The perfect start in a pro boxing career has launched Shakur’s name in the Featherweight ranking. The status of an amateur world champion paved the way for Shakur to take the ring for the WBO featherweight championship belt, who vacated Joet Gonzalez on October 26.
Ryan Garcia (18-0, Lightweight)
Having talents like Oscar De La Hoya, it is not wrong if Ryan Garcia is expected to emulate the glory of the Golden Boy. With a record 18 times unbeaten, Garcia can become the ruler of the Lightweight. Garcia is getting ready for the Golden Boy orbit to improve his fist career.
Karlos Balderas (9-0, Lightweight)
Despite failing to win a medal at the 2016 Olympics, Karlos Balderas has a promising style of boxing. Many have praised the fighting style that will become a capital when you rise to the professional ring.
As with Errol Spence four years earlier, Balderas is predicted to be more hockey in the pro ring. That is evidenced by his achievements that have not been defeated in nine fights. One of the key figures under boxing promoter Richard Schaefer, Balderas wants to go up next year to improve his career.
