Shakur Stevenson Announces Comeback for Unification Showdown

In a surprising turn of events, Shakur Stevenson, the undefeated rising star, has declared that he will come out of retirement for the right fight. The frustration of not landing significant bouts led to Stevenson’s brief retirement, but he is now eyeing a return for a unification fight at 135 pounds.

Stevenson expressed his dissatisfaction with Emanuel Navarrete being ordered to fight Denys Berinchyk for the vacant WBO lightweight belt, anticipating a potential unification clash between Vasiliy Lomachenko and Navarrete. However, Stevenson emphasized that no one can claim undisputed status at 135 without facing him and taking the WBC title he never vacated.

“I’m waiting for the opportunity to come out of retirement. I got a WBC belt. So all roads to undisputed, being at 135, it comes through me,” Stevenson declared. Despite the frustration, he remains confident and ready to face anyone in the quest for undisputed glory.

As the lightweight division unfolds with Lomachenko and Navarrete in the spotlight, Stevenson believes that his presence is essential for a complete unification. The 26-year-old is determined to showcase his skills and cement his status as a dominant force in the division.

The boxing world now awaits the outcomes of upcoming fights, including Lomachenko versus George Kambosos and Navarrete versus Berinchyk, to see if one of the winners will step up to face Stevenson. The return of Stevenson adds intrigue to the lightweight landscape, and fans are eager to witness how the unfolding events will shape the division.
