Wouldnt surprise me.
I was highly skeptical he would ever fight again.
Time to have a permanent role as a commontator on Friday Night Fights & the PPV's.

Great career by Briggsy & nothing to be ashamed of.
Best of luck in the future mate.

one mre thing all around the same weight, shows how good aussie boxing was getting these last 2 years, when you have 5-6 genuinly top 20 guys in there respective division...
Sad day to see him retire..... but best of luck to the future, Paul can hold his head up high the fights with adamek inspired everyone

He probably was only going to continue to get a deserving payday against Mundine. With Mundine running down to middle weight, and green retired, he must have decided their is nothing that is going to pay him enough to continue.

Good luck to him.

Paul has officially retired from professional boxing from today! its been about 3-4 weeks since paul and i started training with majority of the work being conditioning and just this week we begain sparring. Over the last 2 weeks ive had subconcious thoughts about paul in training that he's not responding how i think he should be which was confirmed this week in sparring.
There were rumours as to Pauls health problem regarding his nervous system and i can verify that there is a problem there as ive seen it with my own eyes! it's something most of us cant understand as it hasnt happened to us it affects his overall body mechanics to where he's so filled nervous tension that his body cant respond eg being able to see things and react to it.
After seeing this today i had no hesitation in telling Paul to call it a day as he also knew it was anyway!
Paul gave it one last shot and was dead serious which could have been fatal as we've seen in to many cases over the years, its now Pauls turn to sit back without any doubts in his mind and bask in the glory of a fabulous care
er and be healthy and excited about the new chapter in he's life.


From his trainer...

Glad to hear that he had good people around him giving him honest advice. Nothing worse then having yes men who send you out to get publicly slaughtered. If he wasn't performing in sparring then its not going to be any better in the fight.

Bugger I didn't get to see him box in person BUT family and health come first so all the best to him.

I wonder how Nathan is coming along with ****** training him, we should see the results at Nathans next fight.
