Leonard Dorin Retires From Boxing.

Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Romanian light welterweight fighter Leonard 'The Lion' Dorin has announced his retirement from professional boxing. During a six year career, Dorin won the WBA lightweight title and successfully defended it thumb dorrin Leonard Dorin Retires From Boxing.

before fighting to a contentious draw with IBF lightweight titlist Paul Spadafora, a fight that an overwhelming majority of observers felt Dorin had won decisively. Having fought the bulk of his career as a light welterweight, Dorin returned to that division in his last fight for what has turned out to be his final performance; he lost a bid for the WBC light welterweight title against Montreal born champion Arturo 'Thunder' Gatti.

A dejected Dorin previously hinted at retirement when he was stripped of his WBA lightweight title after failing to make weight for a fight in Romania, costing Interbox, his then promoters in Canada a considerable sum of money.
Dorin's return to the ring was of little consequence and culminated in his losing effort against Gatti. After a decorated amateur career and a successful professional stint, Dorin leaves us with a record of twenty-two wins, eight by knockout with one loss and one draw. All of us here at saddoboxing.com wish Leonard well in his future ventures, whatever they may be.
