Atlanta, GA – Jadakiss and Migos’ member Quavo had two vastly different reactions during their entrances for Top Rank Boxing’s Shakur Stevenson versus Jamel Herring fight at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta on Saturday (October 23).
As the two rappers helped introduce Herring and Stevenson, respectively, social media quickly pointed out the LOX rapper and Verzuz MVP treating the night like any other, whereas Quavo pocketed an easy check. The Atlanta rapper, who previously helped walk Floyd Mayweather down to the ring for his fight with Logan Paul in June, performed “Straightenin” from Migos’ Culture III.
Meanwhile, Kiss escorted Herring to the ring performing a medley of mixtape favorite “The Champ Is Here” and Kiss Tha Game Goodbye single “We Gon’ Make It.”
The performances between the two may have gone in Jadakiss’ favor, but the night didn’t belong to Herring. Stevenson dominated the fight, winning via TKO in the 10th round to claim the WBO’s junior lightweight title. The undefeated boxer improved his record to 17-0 with what many boxing critics described as a “signature win.”
While Stevenson took home the W in the ring, on social media – all signs pointed toward Kiss on a night where celebs such as Kanye West and Michael B. Jordan were in attendance.
“Jadakiss rapping all the words after Quavo half-assed his way to the ring is the perfect metaphor for the Old vs. New fight that’s (hopefully) about to happen in the ring,” one social media user wrote.
