‌”Kid Austin” Schofield’s Father Offers Shock Prediction For Shakur Stevenson Fight‌

Bold prediction by Schofield Sr. as he anticipates his son's victory in a potential matchup with top defensive fighter Stevenson.

Floyd Schofield Sr., the father of undefeated lightweight contender “Kid Austin” Schofield, believes his son will defeat WBC 135-lb champion Shakur Stevenson via knockout.


It’s a bold prediction, but Schofield Sr. thinks his son Kid Austin will stop Shakur (21-0, 10 KOs) a 26-year old American professional boxer, in three rounds. Given that Stevenson is among the top defensive fighters in the sport, Kid Austin(16-0, 12 KOs) will have a difficult time landing punches on him.


Kid Austin, 21, from the United States must pursue Shakur around the ring in order to injure him, and he must be ready to get nailed on the way in and clinched. Shakur usually dives in and ties up his opponents when he’s feeling tough.

“I’m just dropping in to talk about the Shakur thing because I want to give my opinion. Let me tell y’all. I know Kid Austin will knock Shakur out. When they do fight, I really believe that,” said Floyd Schofield’s father in media reports expressing optimism that his son will stop Shakur Stevenson.

“With that being said. I believe Shakur is one of the most talented boxers in boxing right now. Between him and Tank, I think Tank [and Shakur] are the only ones in this division that are really talented. Call-Out and Contradiction. We’ve always said that Shakur is talented and that we’re going to fight the best because I’m going to prove to you that he’s [Schofield] the greatest boxer of all time, and how do we do that? By fighting some of the greatest fighters, but I really believe and it’s no disrespect to Shakur, it’s going to be one of the easiest fights of Floyd’s career. It’s going to be easy,” he added.


“Shakur, I would love it if you gave us a shot. Our family would love the generational wealth that would come from this. Let’s do it. [William] Zepeda, I hate to throw you under the bus. I think you and Kid would be a good fight, and we’re not looking past you. I told Floyd that you’re going to be harder than Shakur because of the amount of punches you throw,” explained Schofield’s father expressing his opinion that Kid Austin would face a more formidable opponent in William Zepeda, who is still undefeated, than Shakur Stevenson.
