Shakur Stevenson has taken an unconventional approach to his career through the start of 2024

The 26-year-old took to social media on January 29, announcing his shock retirement from professional boxing.

“I’m officially retiring from the sport of boxing.

“I’ll be in the gym forever, perfecting my craft and helping the next generation become great and chase [their] dreams, but I ain’t [f***ing with] this weak boxing game.”

However, his retirement didn’t last long. Stevenson is back, ready to lace up, and he appears to have no shortage of fighters on his hit list.

Despite calling out William Zepeda, no further progress has been made. It is still unknown who the American will face in his maiden lightweight title defence.

However, Stevenson recently revealed that he will be making his ring return on July 6th.

“July 6th, I’m back, and they woke a monster up. I’m the best fighter in the sport, take it how you want. Everyone gets punished from here on out,” The WBC champion wrote on Instagram.
