Default Tony Jeffries has Retired

Sad to see Jaffa retire but with his hand problems it was inevitable.

Shame for him big shame that, never really took off as a pro.

Still winning a medal at the olympics is a fine achievement that anyone would be proud with.

He still living in LA?

Shit that, regardless of what people think of him. Seems like he's still managing to do alright for himself though which is good.

Yeah he's still in LA, opening a fitness gym with Mickey Rourke, which Jeffries will run, he's doing well for himself.

I'm gutted for the lad, shame he's so injury prone.

I feel sorry for Tony, he was the BBC Sports Personality of the Year for the North East. His career should have rocketed after that.

Not really, Degale is doing alright for himself and Billy Joe and Price are just about our two best prospects.

As for Gavin and Joe Murray, there careers are stalling.

Considering the talent that went to those games, their return so far has been shockingly bad.

Not just the GB team, there isnt a single world champion from all the medalists

Chakkiev is probably the best pro of the lot & the Val Barker winner Lomachenko is still an amateur

Amature and Pro are really two different sports.

How can India be massive in amature boxing and have no fighters in the Pro's , they dont have the same situation as Cuba.
