Well Matchroom boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn clearly doesn’t believe he is serious and expects him to return to the ring.

Speaking to FightHype, Hearn said: “It’s ridiculous. Like I don’t even know why we give this kind of stuff airtime.”

“Like Shakur Stevenson, one of the best pound for pound fighters on the planet, he’s so boring. How old is the guy, 26. Of course he’s not retiring. Just say to him ‘Alright, mate. Bye. Come back to us when you’ve finished your tantrum.’”
