Default Torben Keller retires

Danish prospect Torben Keller has announced his retirement. On Septembre 13 the stylish lightmiddleweight was stopped in the first round by big-punching Amenian Aman Torosyan.
It was the ninth time out of 14 contests, that the undefeated Torosyan stopped his opponent in the first round. But few expected Keller to go the same way. But Keller was caught cold and was stopped when referee Saugmann intervened and declared Torosyan the victor after two knockdowns.
Keller had a long and succesful amateur career and seemed to have all the tools but a hard punch to go all the way to at least an European title. He looked like a future world champion in the gymn - but on Sauerlands fightcards he failed to impress, most of all himself. It never worked the way he so much wanted it to.
His best performance came 11 month ago against Bradley Price, whom he outboxed for a 10 round desicion. He showed some great moves and fought a smart, diciplined fight.
A man with high ambitions, the loss must have been a big shock. And the decision to quit may be wise. A symphatic and smart bloke like him will always do well.

There also was a clause in his contract, that he would start to get paid less, if he lost a match.

Said he had the choice of calling it quits or go continue with a far less amount of training.
