Love Roy he had a great career but unfortunately he may change his mind. He should retire for his health's sake but I'm not his parent and either way he's a grown ass man so the choice is up to him. A fan for life of you Roy!

Apparently he's going to become a trainer

This is excellent news. I'm a fan of his and I knew his time was up. When you get KO'd like he was getting KO'd it's time to do something else.

I hope it's true. Why does he need to keep fighting?

If he does keep fighting he's never going to be on world class level again. Even if he somehow can compete he's going to get KO'd by the top guys at cruiserweight because frankly he doesn't have the chin to be a cruiserweight.

Doubt it if he would be a good trainer. His style doesn't lend itself to be taught to others.
