    Amazing! Why did he quit? Was it injury, or was he getting his ass beat? (please say the latter)

    He was getting hurt and his ass kicked.

    Glad to hear it. Truth be told I really liked John back in the day, but boxing doesn't need protected guys like that who refuse to step up. Glad he got knocked off.

    This is exactly how I see it. I was a fan of John, and thought he beat Marquez in a close fight, but then he stopped taking challenging fights. We'll finally get some clarity in the featherweight division.

    Is Chris John the Sven Ottke of his day?
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    LOL I like that thought. But I have to be fair to Chris John, he is/was a fantastic boxer.

    BTW is this the Marciano curse striking again? He lost before he could get to 49-0
