Just a few days ago, out of the blue, Shakur Stevenson took to X and declared he was retiring from the sport. Although he promised to keep practicing and helping others achieve their dreams, Stevenson claimed he was done with the sport as the “boxing game” seemed “weak” to him. However, as per The Ring magazine, Shakur was not serious about hanging his gloves. Looks like they were right because Shakur positively responded to a fan-made poster of Stevenson vs. ‘Tank’.

A fan took to X and shared a poster of ‘Tank’ facing off with Shakur Stevenson. In addition, they wrote Shakur vs. Abdul Wahid would be a bigger fight than Canelo vs. Crawford, Beterbiev vs. Bivol, Fury vs. Usyk etc. At this, as the poster came to Stevenson’s notice, he reposted the tweet by saying, “Whoever made that picture they cold“. Well, with Stevenson’s interest, if Davis is in the mood too, the boxing fans can certainly expect Shakur vs. ‘Tank’ in the sport.
