Olympic boxer Shakur Stevenson apparently instigated a fight with a group, including two women, and proceeded to throw a barrage of punches at a floored victim at a gas station in Miami.
The incident reportedly happened as Stevenson was out celebrating his 21st birthday in July of last year in South Beach, along with fellow boxer David Grayton.
According to a police report, the incident unfolded when Stevenson’s group made sexually explicit comments to the other party.

Stevenson, who is signed with promotional kingpin Bob Arum’s company Top Rank, been labelled a “coward” and a “scumbag” from outraged fans, professionals and some journalists.
Not a good look for Shakur Stevenson. Surveillance footage showed him clocking what appeared to be a woman on the back of the head as well.

Both of the men fled the scene before police arrived but were later arrested for battery at their hotel.
Paramedics treated the injured man and a woman for cuts and bruises at the scene.
Stevenson’s next fight will be on the under-card of the Terence Crawford’s WBO World Welterweight Title defense versus Amir Khan on April 20th, in which he will face former world title challenger Christopher Diaz.
