    Default Fighters who retired at the right time.

    Had a topic that was about fighters who didnt retire when they should have.
    How about those that did.
    Two spring to mind.
    Prince naseem and kostya tszyu, both realised their time was up, and hopefully both dont make comebacks.
    Who else?

    Lennox Lewis of course. Interesting note. I read a Boston Globe article today from 1994 from writer Ron Borges (great writer, don't know what this plagiarism deal is about) and Lewis was labeled a bust. Manny Steward basically trashed him as a no hoper and the article talked about what could have been. What a difference 10 years makes. Makes me wonder about Audley...because a lot of those criticisms he go were the same ones Audley gets. He just wasn't so old.

    -----------
    "Coming out of the '88 Games, I thought he was the prize fighter," Steward said several days before he sent his latest charge, McCall, into the ring at Wembley Arena to challenge Lewis, whom he beat via TKO 31 seconds into the second round to become the new World Boxing Council champion. "But he has not progressed at all to the degree he should. In fact, he's regressed.

    "He's a name fighter now because he was handed a championship by the WBC, but no one's excited about him being a great fighter or a great puncher or a great boxer. He's gone backward in every way."
    ------------

    Not trying to shift the topic but Steward said this before the McCall loss. Kind of shocking to read.

    Besides Marciano and Lennox I would say Marvin Hagler.
