Shakur Stevenson

An American boxer made headlines at the Rio Olympics on Saturday, but not for his fighting skills.

19-year-old Shakur Stevenson broke down in tears after losing the bantamweight gold medal to Cuba’s Robeisy Ramirez in a split decision.

Seasoned boxing journos were stunned as Stevenson screamed and wailed inconsolably after the match.

Stevenson was still overcome with emotion during an interview with NBC after the fight.

When asked if he takes pride in winning a silver medal, Shakur wailed, “No! I don’t like to lose”.

The Newark native, who was named after the late rapper Tupac Shakur, hoped to end the 12-year draught in medals for the U.S. men’s Olympic boxing team.

Male athletes are encouraged to show their “human side” after a loss in sports. Today’s men are not expected to “man up” or display their masculinity. Especially now after President Barack Obama, an LGBT rights advocate, declared himself a feminist.

But a black male fighter falling apart so completely on live TV was still a jarring sight to some sports fans.

Sports writers saw the bright side in Stevenson’s future potential as a professional boxer.

But one writer wondered aloud if competing on a world class level is too much pressure for today’s male youth.

“This was Olympic devastation, when a silver medal is considered a loss, when a kid can’t yet step back and see the big picture,” wrote Dan Wetzel for Yahoo Sports.

    Poor guy. That’s all I’ve got…?

  • Billy

    I really appreciate Sugar Rays tweet. I could feel the sincerity. I understand this young mans pain, I can sympathize. To want something so bad, and to be so close. It just hurts. ??

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He showed poor sportsmanship by whining like a girl after winning the 1st medal for U.S. men’s boxing in 12 years. But silver wasn’t good enough for him. Shakur joins ugly Americans Hope Solo and Ryan Lochte in the Hall of Shame.

  • Nonya Bizness

    I wish Sugar Ray knew the difference between LOST and LOSS. His message was lost in translation when I saw that mess, as I was at a loss for words.

  • Billy

    Lol–

  • Billy

    ?Lol–he is human Sandra! He just wanted to bring home a Gold–for his self, and our country, that’s all. A young black man doing something positive is always a positive. It’s ok to cry, to feel emotion.

    “Male athletes are encouraged to show their “human side” after a loss in sports. Today’s men are not expected to “man up” or display their masculinity. ”

    Oh please? That’s a young ass man, a teenager whose emotions got the best of him. Has nothing to do with his gender, ethnicity, Obama, nor this teenagers namesake? Jordan cries, your almighty King James…SHIRLEY this young boy should be allowed to express his true emotions freely without a medical minute. Holding emotions in lead to closet cases who hate themselves, the world, and eventually shoot up the clubs killing those they envy for being free?? This write up is a prime example of the pressures put on Black men. Black youth. Ryan Lochte is just a kid having fun, this true kid however is a punk who has been decensitized by Liberals? Just as poor little Tamir was viewed as a vicious 35 year old threat to humanity…Here we have a teenager showing vulnerability, non threatening, and yet he’s still viewed as everything but what he is…Fvck! Luckily I saw this unfold yesterday on Twitter. I was able to witness him being showered with love and praise?? As he should be. He gave his opponent props and faulted no one but himself. A true man by every definition of the word??

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    He is only 19. He will appreciate his silver medal later in life. Congrats to him. He did a great job.
    No words for his emotions. Everyone is brought up different and he seems to have put a lot on this journey. God Bless him.

  • MookieFly

    Ugh, he coulda kept that. You get go to the Olympics, which not a lot of 19 year olds get to do, and want to wail like you pushing out a baby over getting a silver medal. Most teens your age can’t even get into Devry with somebody holding the door open but you throwing a fit over not winning. If he did that in a football or basketball game, he woulda got laughed out the stadium. It’s okay to be sad after not winning. It’s human nature. The dramatics are not what I’m here for.

  • Noirluv45

    Society today doesn’t allow for honesty. We are told to hide our emotions and to be strong. We aren’t supposed to be transparent.

  • Alisa

    Well blame the powers that be. Anything less than perfect is unacceptable, means your a failure. And when your representing our country you hv to be perfect anything less is embarrassing. So I agree we don’t teach sportsmanship. We all can’t win but humble yourself to accept and be proud that you made it to the Olympics. Sad he can’t understand that we don’t always win. He probably feels he let down ALOT of people and during training he was told if he didn’t win gold he was a loser.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I say let it out. When you work so hard and a Jude is sitting there and has not walked in your shoes tell you that you wasn’t good enough to win…….it hurts, I mean it really hurts. I glad he was man enough to cry

  • Cunningham ?

    Soooo he cried like a lil bee- otch? sheesh at least you got to compete…. in RIO!

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Awwww

    Hopefully he still have faith in himself. There will be a next time.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Let’s see, silver medal or title of the boxer that cried? Allyson Felix was cheated out of her gold medal too, but she handled it like a pro and never spoke ill of the bitch competitor who got it. I get it, but hell, not like he got nothing. You won silver my man, at 19.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Yeah, the Olympics are the foundation to your career. You win a medal, you’re a shoe in. Win gold, you write your own ticket while building a lane of your own. His focus should be career, not the medal. I too hope he keeps faith in himself and build a career. The boxer that cried.

  • Nonya Bizness

    He let it out while still giving his opponent props for the win. Didn’t say one bad word about the other guy, before he started crying again.Plus he’s only 19. The guy that won the Gold won 4 years ago as well, so maybe in 4 years, Shakur can try again, although I did read Floyd is interested in his career.

  • AggieMom96

    I’m really starting to hate your commentary. He’s 19. Do you even know his story? He wanted to win so he could go pro and provide for his family. He’s an extraordinary talent and he will go far- have you no heart, no empathy? How many athletes have we seen cry? Neymar is a global superstar and he broke down in tears after the historic win. You could use some of Shakur’s ambition and pride- we all could. He has absolutely nothing to be ashamed of!

  • AggieMom96

    That’s because she is a pro. See the difference there? You’re a loser. Seriously. You probably whine when someone jumps in front of you in the turning lane yet you feel qualified to judge this Olympian? He’s a teenager. Please please please have several seats!

    I know its wrong, but when I read the headline for this article and looked at the pic, I laughed.

  • lovelygamour

    I’ve cried after auditions. So I know if I was close to winning a gold medal and didnt I would be on the floor.
    However, I was mad at the reporter for asking him that in the mist of his feelings but the reporter was giving him a chance to show the world he was proud. His handlers shouldve said, “questions later”.

  • PhillyFacts

    I agree “emotions” or not, it came off extremely bratty and ungrateful. “High expectations” or not, I’m sure he made all silver-medalist feel like losers.

  • Renee26

    His cry was kinda funny

  • MookieFly

    Exactly. Now if he was cheated out of the title, disqualified, or was coming home with nothing, that’s something to be distraught over. Other than that, you need to cut it!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    If you had to categorize (which u don’t) for me… In this lifetime… For this story….. Men cry….. Real men that I know… Sometimes taking a loss gracefully ….. And that does take some feminine qualities by the way….. Go for it… See (insert) bye.

  • BlueCandy

    Yes!!

  • MsSincerity

    I didn’t see the cry, but I bet it was nowhere near as bad a that little, chubby azz brat (Rachel Crow) that fell out on the floor on X Factor when she lost, talking bout some “mom you promised”……How in the f – – k your mother (who is not in charge of the competition btw) gonna promise you that you’re gonna win? I bet her mom coached her into doing that in case she lost, so that she can gain sympathy, and boy did it work. I wanted to knock fire from that little girl I tell ya……FIRE!!! Btw, I don’t watch no stupid azz X Factor….back when it happened, the media just kept replaying that s – -t. I don’t even know why I’m telling yall this long azz story. Whatever, Bye!

  • http://Copblock.org Brenden’s Back #BlockDeez?

    I disagree. If medals of any denomination propelled American athletes,,,There wouldn’t be all the stories of those who can barely afford running cleats on the day of the Olympic Games…In fact, there’s an article that shows where several poorer nations reward their Olympic athletes with much more abundance than the USA. He wanted that medal to advance his career. Gold may not have allotted him to write his own ticket. It hasn’t for the man he lossed to. That’s his second gold in the last two Olympics, and yet we know nothing of him. I’ve cried for much less…I’m entitled to as is Shakur…

    Initially I thought Sugar Ray’s use of lost was his grammatical error. Then upon reading it again, I think he intended to substitute lost for loss because loss has a tone of death and consdolence. He lost a fight, he did not suffer a loss. Just my humble and sincere opinion.

    In all honesty, I’d probably cry too. My tears wouldn’t be for not winning a particular medal, but the fact that I’d bust my a$$ day in, day out for years to get to THIS point & for things to not go the way I expected. There are no guarantees in life, so what if he doesn’t make it back in another 4? That has to be tough on all of them either placing lower or not all. Vashti Cunningham was upset and Wilhem Belocian (hurdler) was in TEARSSS & damn bended knees for a false start dq. Swimmer Miguel Duran had TEARRRS, SNOT & ALL before later being allowed to swim. Sports ain’t easy…I KNOW THAT MUCH.

    Read 2nd Maccabees Chapter 4 Verses 7 to 17

    …this was the time period that our forefathers ( the Israelites) were living in greece

    Things to note:

    1. The Book of Maccabees is in the Apocrypha (the books that were removed out of the Bible, so that the Chosen…us…would not be able to trace VERY IMPORTANT HISTORY that is needed to explain the New Testament writings AND to see that we are repeating the same mistakes that our forefathers made!

    2. The Book of Maccabees was named after a black man called Judah Maccabees (if you google, they portray him as a edomite/arab looking…but we all know that’s a LIE)

    2. I strongly suggest reading the KJV version with concordance…..you can google the 2Maccabees 4:7-17 (KJV)

    the black dominance is Biblical prophecy:

    “And the LORD said unto her, TWO NATIONS are in thy womb, and TWO MANNER OF PEOPLE shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people SHALL BE STRONGER than the other people; and the elder SHALL serve the younger” GENESIS 25:23

    the elder = Edomite/Esau
    the younger = us black people and the 11 other tribes:

  • ATL White Guy

    There’s a fine line between showing emotion and going over the top and showing out. Ain’t nothing wrong for a man to cry, but when it becomes a tantrum that’s a little too much.

  • Xsjado

    I can understand his pain. Especially working so hard to get where is. It’s completely understandable to be able to show your emotions. I’d rather see him show his true self than to hide it.

    He is a true champion in my book because even though he lost, he gave the other fighter props and handled the way a true competitor should.

    This young man has a bright future ahead of him.

    Good luck young man!

    I feel woman have come a long way – and yes we may have many impostors but “we” as “real” woman can never be conquered unless we allow it to happen. A man in a dress can never take our place.

    Although your point is well taken, it’s the Olympics. He just wanted to be great. He’ll become a better man because of this. I wish him well.

    What are you talking about???? We could discuss this all day and all night long, but I always say that people that are in management positions CANNOT be INFJ. They just can’t because I am very passionate. When I am happy you’re going to know it, and when I am pissed you are going to know it. For example, I when I can stomach watching BBWLA, I am like you can tell Shaunie has that management personality because she remains so calm, and unbothered (even if she is). I will never forget my ex-manager said she was on a con-call with executive management and they did not know that she logged on yet and she said one of the directors were just lying on her and talking really crazy stuff about her, and she said it so matter of factly. Like I would have been ready to cause WWIII. Just out of curiosity, have you ever the DISC testing?

    Infjs make excellent managers imo … They are very empathetic and intuitive …. I hide a lot period in general although I am very cut and dry…. My surface is just that…. In a work environment I adjust and try not to be figured …. I blend or get ghost … But good managers though…. But if they are not in management they can get their feelings hurt quite a bit…. The average wouldn’t know trust not for me anyways….

    yeah, but think about it, you get out of things what you put into it. Now, I ‘m not saying you’re going to be Bill Gates rich all from winning a medal, but an Olympic medal kinda puts you at the front of the athletic line. Let’s just say an Olympian would get at least “first look” if he/I were up for the same opportunity. That’s my point. I know who wouldn’t be draped in medals, but starving. Yep, I can say that cause I know me.

    You have to know which opportunity to make the most of vs having your nose in the air waiting for ‘the right one.’ I know me and no way would I have an Olympic medal and I’m some regular 9-5 gig. But that’s just me. And move around. If no opportunities are beating your door down in your country, seek out gigs in other places. I see what you’re saying, but no way, not me.

    I learned long ago the level of person’s intelligence when they resort to name calling. Reading this comment from you in response to something else I posted, you’re not making any points, you’re name calling. I can tell in your life, you have a defeatist attitude, I don’t. Never have. Take from this post whatever joy you’re getting by trolling and throwing insults. Let me go in my corner and cry because someone Idk or will never meet couldn’t debate a point with basic common sense. Instead, she took the route of poking at non-existent flaws. Sorry you hate your life. Say a prayer??

  • AggieMom96

    Blah blah blah. Umm you just labeled a competitor a bitch and I’m name calling? You is a loser. And a hit dog will holla won’t it?
    Nice attempt at a diatribe tho but idgaf. Please don’t mistake boredom for interest or caring.

    Tell ya what… Find the dude and tell him that to his face. And when you get feeling back in your face you’ll shut the h up next time…

  • Nonya Bizness

    I agree.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    @realsandrarose:disqus I agree wholeheartedly. It went downhill when the whole “trophies for everyone” attitude and era hit. Losing build character and teaches you to keep working and never give up. NO ONE can win at everything or everytime
