Default Tony Oakey to retire

He's having one more fight (this month against Michael Banbula) and says he's calling it a day afterwards.

Don't like them regarding the WBU as a proper title

Ever since he was caught positive for cocaine he has never been the same fighter. A good domestic fighter and a real figher always in scraps.

He will certainly be missed. Gave us fans some top scraps and achieved a good amount.

Well done to him.

Good decision I feel, when you get sparked by McIntosh the writings on the wall. Especially where Oakey is coming from in his career having been known for being a real tough battler in the ring, thats a sign it isn't there any longer.

Solid career he's had, good example of a fighter making the most of what he had.

Won't be in Portsmouth that weekend

Would have loved to see Oakeys final scrap as well, been a great domestic fighter all through his career who was involved in some great scraps....
