Shakur Stevenson says there might be a chance Eminem could walk him out for his next fight following a recent meeting between the pair.
The two-weight world champion will fight for the vacant WBC lightweight title against Edwin De Los Santos on November 16, 2023 and has not ruled out being accompanied by the Detroit legend.
Having escorted Terrence Crawford to the ring for his July battle against Errol Spence, Slim Shady is no stranger to the boxing scene.
He was also present when Tyson Fury defeated Francis Ngannou in a split decision in Saudi Arabia earlier this month.
Stevenson revealed that he met the lyricist during the weekend of the Crawford v Spence fight in Las Vegas and let slip a conversation between the pair.
“I actually met him the night before the fight. He told me he was a big fan and actually he is a big fan because when he saw me he was like ‘man, two of my favorite boxers, I finally get to meet them. Nobody can beat you man, it’s just too hard to hit you man.” – Shakur Stevenson told ES News.
The ringing endorsement from one of music’s biggest stars pleased the Olympic silver medalist who also hinted at a possible collaboration with Eminem in the near future.
When asked if Marshall Mathers could walk him to the ring in his next fight, he replied: “I don’t know, we’ll see, we’ll see.”
