Shakur Stevenson's Comeback Arum Dispels Retirement, Questions Remain"

Amidst swirling retirement rumors, Shakur Stevenson’s promoter, Bob Arum, has quashed the speculation, asserting that the young fighter is not hanging up his gloves just yet. Despite Stevenson’s recent announcement on social media, Arum confidently states that in his next bout, fans can expect a stellar performance from the talented boxer.

Shakur Stevenson (21-0, 10 KOs), the WBC lightweight titleholder, stirred controversy when he declared his retirement, citing frustration with the boxing landscape. Arum, however, reveals that the decision was likely influenced by Stevenson’s disappointment upon learning of Emanuel Navarrete’s plans to vie for the vacant WBO lightweight title against Denys Berinchyk.

In a recent interview, Arum acknowledged Stevenson’s lackluster showing in his last fight against Edwin De Los Santos but attributed it to multiple injuries sustained during training. Despite the defensive critique that has surrounded Stevenson, Arum remains optimistic about the young talent’s future, emphasizing that his last bout does not accurately reflect his skills and excitement level.

The comparison between Stevenson and Guillermo Rigondeaux, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, surfaces as critics point to Stevenson’s defensive style hindering his stardom potential. Arum dismisses the notion, expressing confidence in Stevenson’s abilities and teasing an impressive comeback.

As the boxing world awaits official confirmation from Stevenson regarding his return to the ring, doubts linger about whether injuries and defensive tactics are impeding his ascent in the sport. One thing remains clear – Shakur Stevenson’s journey is far from over, and his next bout will be closely scrutinized as he aims to prove his detractors wrong.
