Britain's worst boxer

He said: “I’m announcing my retirement after not being successful and losing brain cells. I can’t take no more.
“I have boxed the best in Britain and boxed world title challengers and a world champ in a 55-fight career, that ain’t been the best. I’m proud to say at least I did something people said I couldn’t.”

On his ‘Britain’s Worst Boxer’ title, he said: “Thanks to all the people that slated me and the ones that love me.”

“I’m deadly serious – it’s just not worth my time anymore. I have done more than most would ever do in boxing – I just wanted something back. I did it for money and didn’t get enough. I loved entertaining people but I need to earn a living.
“I love the sport and will always love it – I’m just not stepping in the ring again.”
