http://news.boxrec.com/news/2013/gavin-rees-hints-retirement-following-loss-anthony-crollaFormer WBA light welterweight champion Gavin 'The Rock' Rees (37-3-1) has hinted at retirement following his narrow points loss to Anthony Crolla at Bolton Arena over the weekend.
Speaking to Phil Blanche of Media Wales, Rees, 33, said: “It’s possibly cooked my career, maybe that’s it – the Ricky Burns fight has gone, everything’s gone.”
After the loss to Crolla, Rees's promoter Eddie Hearn suggested there were big domestic dates available for the Welshman, but asked: "Does someone like Gavin want to fight for lesser titles and smaller money?”
To which Rees replied: “Domestic level? I doubt it, no. I doubt it very much.”
Ress's trainer, former world title challenger Gary Lockett, vowed to support the Rock's decision whatever it may be.
“I’ll back him 100 per cent in what he chooses to do. He’s had a fantastic career, won British and European titles and a version of the world title – and how many from Wales have done that?"
