Default Who should retire from boxing?

I think Tito should stay out, Jones should do as well. DLH should stick to promote and Mosley should retire after his next two fights. Judah should either go down to 140 or retire. Holyfield should stick to charity events... Any thoughts?

Holyfield should go, but will not

Calzaghe should call it a day win or lose against Kessler

Hopkins has nothing left to prove

Riddick Bowe. Of all the current comebacking HWs, he seems to have the least to offer.

The names you all mentioned makes me laugh out loud.
Hopkins? Why? he's got enough to beat MOST guys out there.. he just beat Winky ffs.
Mayweather? well, that's just hatred..
Holyfield?... he's getting a title shot, let him fight and then decide.


Fedor Em : Jones, Tito, Castillo, Barrera after Pac, Holyfield, Toney, and Larios.

Every one marked I would agree with, Castillo I don't really know about right now, he still has enough to beat most guys out there, to be honest.

why Mayweather the guy is at his prime he should box for another 5 years and secure his legacy as an atg because he has the skill to do be on of the goat but he would have to continue fighting for some time to prove it.

I think at 147 Floyd will win a UD or possibly but unlikely late round TKO.

but.....if the fight had taken place at 140 today perhaps that would favour Hatton at this point in time. I am no huge fan of Mayweather but I just dont see Hatton being the man to break Mayweather especially at 147.

Hopkins is still world class no doubt, he needs to fight the winner of Calzaghe/Kessler, if he loses he is still and ATG, if he wins put his name next to Chavez, Hagler, Spinks, and Holyfield on the p4p list cause that is where he deserves to be mentioned. I think if Mosley beats Cotto he should go for the winner of PBF/Hatton too, that is another huge legacy fight. Glen Johnson is still a top contender as well.

Yeah Castillo still has some in the tank, but I think Paulie would win a UD over him now, and of course he loses to Hatton again. Witter would be a 50/50 fight as well.
