Whoa! That is shocking. Got a link?

maybe he's got personal stuff going. Surely that tall block didn't take the desire from him?

I just tried to search his instagram to se if he mentioned anything but his account has been shut down.

Hopefully the reasoning is that COVID won't allow him good enough paydays to make it worthwhile. At 26 he could go back to work until crowds are allowed to return and then make a comeback. Saying that, I am guessing there isn't another reason why he has quit.

Maybe. But I don't see why he would need to say he is retiring for that.

Former world title challenger Trent Broadhurst has announced his retirement due to injury.

32 year old Broadhurst logged a record of 22-4 over his 10 year pro career. His career highlight was probably challenging Bivol unsuccessfully for his WBA title in 2017.

Jeff Horn sounds like he is fighting on. He was quoted as saying this in an interview recently in Rockhampton.

“I always said I was going to be retiring at 35 and that's still the case,” Horn said.

Give it away Jeff.

Brock Jarvis vs Mark Schleibs

Team Fenech vs Team Ellis


Loved Ellis and Fenech in their fighting days. Both great champions in their own rights.

Unfortunately Lester not looking that great in the video. Hope I'm very wrong about that. Hope you live to 100 Lester.

At the end when Lester says "we'll party for a few weeks".... really gives me the feeling that Lester is no stranger to a bender haha
