Shakur Stevenson To Return From “Retirement” In June

Well, that was quickly. Mere weeks after revealing his retirement to the world, 26 years of age Shakur Stevenson has actually altered his mind. According to a social networks post, he’ll be going back to action in June. “I’m officially retiring from the sport of boxing,” Stevenson declared in late January. “I’ll be in the gym forever perfecting my craft and helping the next generation become great and chase they dreams but I ain’t fw this weak boxing game.” That was then, this is now. “I’ll fight any and everybody this what I do,” Stevenson published on social networks Tuesday. “See y’all in June #ChasingGreatness“.

Considered among the most skilled fighters on the plant, Shakur has actually won world titles in 3 weight departments as an expert fighter. As an amateur, he made a Silver Medal in the 2012 Olympic video games. Fast, slick, and having a high ring IQ, Stevenson is absolutely nothing if not a tough man to beat. His smooth design, nevertheless, has actually resulted in some hostility among the sport’s fandom. Stevenson’s last battle, which protested the unknown Edwin De La Santos last November, showed to be something of a snooze fest. Stevenson himself suggested that, while he controlled in the ring that night, his total efficiency was less than remarkable.

No question the criticism that originated from the De La Santos bout stung. It didn’t sting enough for Stevenson to avoid of the video game a complete 2 weeks, nevertheless. “Couldn’t keep myself away from it,” Stevenson published to social networks Tuesday night. “Love this shit too much lol.” When he was consequently called out for wanting to wait an extended period of time before combating once again in June, Stevenson was prepared with a fast action. “I can only handle what’s in my control,” he published, “so see u in June!”

There’s some huge battles out there that Stevenson can possibly belong of. The light-weight kingpin remains in the exact same basic weight world as Devin Haney, Ryan Garcia, Gervonta Davis, and Vasyl Lomachenko – all leading names that Stevenson can perhaps insinuate between the ropes to deal with. He’s no simple out for a popular fighter, however it’s worth bearing in mind the truth that Stevenson is still a young man. He can likely have rather a long profession ahead of him if he so picks. That suggests he couldn’t be prevented permanently.
