Ray Flores Talks Juan Manuel Marquez Retirement – The last few weeks have seen a number of high profile retirements as Wladimir Klitschko and Tim Bradley both hung up the gloves officially.
Earlier this week news came out of Mexico that former four-weight-class world champion Juan Manuel Marquez had officially called it a career. Marquez just turned 44 years old on August 23rd. He last entered the ring in May of 2014 when he won a unanimous decision over Mike Alvarado. Since then Marquez has flirted with the idea of retiring but the allure of one big fight kept him from making it official. Most recently, Marquez had talked of a fight with Puerto Rico’s Miguel Cotto but this week’s announcement puts all that talk to rest.
Marquez leaves boxing with a 56-7-1 overall record, including 40 wins by way of knockout. Next stop, the International Boxing Hall of Fame.
