Don’t mess with Dexter Jackson.
The beef between former Olympia champion Dexter Jackson and Shawn Ray seems to be intensifying. After both men had interviews with Valuetainment, it appears that a growing rivalry is brewing.
Shawn Ray was the first to be interviewed and made a bunch of criticism of individuals in the bodybuilding industry. One of those individuals was Dexter Jackson. The veteran bodybuilder made claims that Jackson wouldn’t be able to compete with Shawn Ray and others of his generation.
The former Olympia champion didn’t take too kindly to that. In response, Dexter Jackson gave his own interview and stated that he would “smoke” Shawn Ray in competition.
Now everything seems to be spilling over and getting personal.
Shawn Ray issued his own response by placing a repost of an original Strength Addicts post. The post seems to take aim at Dexter Jackson.

Suffice it to say Dexter Jackson isn’t taking this lying down. The self proclaimed “50 Cent of the bodybuilding industry” took to Instagram Live and made a scathing video about Shawn Ray. In the video, Jackson reveals rumored personal information about Shawn Ray.
What do make of this absolute trashing of Shawn Ray by Dexter Jackson?
