Not retired, no.

He was scheduled to return last summer but the back injury flared up again during camp.

I hope to see him back but I doubt he will ever be the same, how do you think he would have gotten on against Golovkin.

He would he caused more problems than anyone Golovkin has fought in the pros, but I still would make Pirog a slight underdog.

He tried to, but had a relapse.

Too bad for him. Back injuries suck. Hope he can earn a comfortable living without boxing.

I heard he had a lot of money tied up in the oil industry and doesn't need to fight again as he's financially secure.

Nah, it's all that chess money.

Now, that career he can pick back up and carry on until his nineties.

He can't be accused of ducking Golovkin if he drags Kasparov outta retirement and kicks his butt. Undefeated middleweight titlist and Grand Master? That's mad swag, yo. Nobody on Earth could **** with that.

He was also a smurf for a while. A very elite club with only guys like Abraham and...Well, Abraham for sure.

Pfft. That club-smurfer?

Pirog would out-smurf Abraham more easily than he would outbox him...or checkmate him.

Oh my, just thinking about it...how badly Pirog would checkmate the **** outta Abraham. He could do it with just the king and one pawn, literally surrendering every other piece from the first move.

I knew that would get you replying. I mean, I felt my spider senses tingling when I thought about it. ...If only this could've come up in the last RBR...If only...If only...Ahem...If only...Guys where the hell is the flashback sound and the blurry picture transition to the flashback? What kind of second-rate show is this?

It wouldn't kill him to issue a statement.
Put us out of our misery....
