An unfortunate shoulder injury forced his cancellation of the bout and ultimately, his retirement.

In a statement to Canadian Media outlet, La Presse, he explained why:

“My body is talking to me. It’s time that I make the right decision.”

“When I started in hockey, I had rage in me. This sport helped me channel that. It was my therapy. Today, that rage is no longer in me. Today, I’m doing well. I don’t feel the need to fight anymore, to go make war.”
