I think boxing is a sideline for him whilst he's in his prime years, once he feels he's starting to slip or ''achieved what he wants to'' (basically when a hard fight is next) he'll pack in.
Nothing against him, he's done well for a kid who a while back was considered a middling domestic prospect at best, but he's not in it for the long haul or the glory.
Í've heard him talking about retirement already which is never a good sign. Not that he's considering it, just ""I'll unify the titles and then retire"" or something like that.
