Shakur Stevenson and his retirement

Unbeaten WBC star in the making Shakur Stevenson announced his retirement from the sport last week. This, more than anything came down to the sheer frustration of him not being able to get into the big fights. Fight fans also know they never believed a word of it. Now, pretty much on cue, Stevenson has said he will “come out of retirement” for the right fight. And the right fight, as Shakur wrote on social media, is a unification fight at 135 pounds. But as Shakur points out, nobody can become a Unified Champ at 135 without fighting and defeating him, thus taking the WBC title he never vacated during his very short “retirement.”

It will be interesting to see how things play out – Will Loma beat Kambosos? Will Navarrete beat Berinchyk? And then, will one of the two winners agree to face Stevenson? You cannot blame Stevenson one bit for being as annoyed and as disappointed as he is over the way the names he wants to fight will not face him.
