Felix Trinidad. Has nothing to prove in the sport. He's well above his natural weight(170). Only fighting because Don King makes good offers.

Evander Holyfield. I dont know how this guy's brain is still working. He's gonna get hurt one of these days.

Oscar, Jones for sure only shells of what they were i think Jones was undone when he stopped juicing.

I think Winky needs to stop as does Mosley his speech has become rather slured.

Any fighter who loses three straight bouts, or has been knocked out 5 times should retire. Funny, Feliciano fought Alfonso Gomez 3 times beatin him 2 times. I guess that win over Gatti really helped Gomez resume in order to get a fight with Cotto.

Im kinda confused as to why people would say Hatton? The guy is only 29 and lost 1 fight in his career. Its not like hes too old and/or losing his stuff.

I would go with Holyfield, Hopkins and Calzaghe(after RJJ) of course.

I just don't have any interest in seeing this current version of Hatton. If he can go back to his great self I'd watch him all day. I just feel like its only a matter of time before he gets brutally knocked out again.

That's got me confused as well. Oscar, Roy, BHop and Holyfield :thumbsup:

My first inclination was to say Ronald Wright. I'm sure he's still got the skills, but is there any fight left in him? He can't seem to come to terms with the fact that his style is not crowd pleasing or television friendly and as a result of that, he can't get the big money fights. Winky still thinks he's a main attraction and now he's missing in action. He should have taken the rematch with Taylor right after their first fight. If I remember correctly, he had that clause written into their contract. After the way he fought him the first go round, you had to figure he'd have a good look of coming out on top if he got another chance. He wanted a 50/50 or 60/40 split. He could have been undisputed middleweight champ. That would have brought the fights his way no problem. His unreasonable expectations have made an already uninterested legion of boxing fans care even less if they ever see him again. Thinking back to the HBO countdown show to his fight with Hopkins, his love for doughnuts seems to have overtaken his devotion to the sweet science.

Jones Jr quit fighting in the 90's after then he just boxed exhibitions
till he heard " Have you got any excuses tonight Roy ?"

I don't like to see any fighters retire. I'm pretty selfish, I'd still love to see Eubank come back even though he's in for a beating! I'd probably even pay to watch Tyson-Holyfield III even though it's a joke to boxing. That's just me.

a lot of boxers fight because they are broke and need the money. even though there are risks of getting hurt, i understand them i am happy to see them make some cash to live happily. i mean castillo needs cash and as much as i htink he needs to retire i want him to carry on. i think he is now (although i'm not sure since he didn't make the weight).

people that have the money and only box to make more money i feel should retire.

oscar needs to retire. imo he doesn't have anything that would surprise me. he's not challengng himself like he use to.

floyld. the guy is playing people about retiring and this and that. he needs to accept a challenge from cotto for me to not want him to retire.

roy jones junior. he may be a juicer but he's done a lot for boxing. he doesn't need to fight no one else after calzaghe.

calzaghe. he is past his prime and doesn't need to fight people to prove to anyone. if he is happy with what he has done in boxing then retiring after roy jones jnr will be perfect.

jermaine taylor. i just don't like a guy that doesn't like watching boxing. lol jk jermaine has got skills and will come back

hopkins. even though i think the man has one more fight in him, and i respect that he can still do something at his age, but he aint gonna have big hyped fights like calzaghe. if he fights a bum i got a feeling he won't care.

Pre Tszyu he was a great fighter post Tszyu until Lazcano i thought he was gone.

He beat up on Lazcano well enough to tell me he still has it in him to dominate 140lbs.

Hay he pulls 57,000 could fill a 100,000 stadium and is second behind Oscar at the box office if you were him would you retire at 29yo?
