Yes. He announced his retirement immediately after his last fight: the loss to Fonfara on FnF.

He said that he officially retired after his last fight but I'm sure that he had plans at 175, had he won. With a victory, he probably would have had a decent shot at landing a rematch with Dawson or Cloud...

Yes, with much ballyhoo on FNF a few months back.

You sound a bit more naive then me when you claim you know more than me when you don't even know me.

He is still wanting to come back I hear and if he gets the right fight he will take it.

He would do either. He had no problems making 168lbs and he said he felt great at the weight.

He is a great guy. I am 50/50 as to wanting him to fight again. He is a true Warrior and love watching him fight. I just don't want to see him fighting just to get a pay day and not being that Warrior any longer.

Yeah. It seems counter-intuitive, usually you don't see a guy at the tail end of his career moving back down in weight, but he did look pretty strong & healthy during his S6 stint and then against Bute.

Then, when he moved back up to LHW, the pretty average Fonfara was able to shift him with some ease.




Based on his form in recent years, I'd have to say as crazy as it sounds 168 might be his best option if he's going to continue.

I agree with 168. I talked with him before the Froch fight and he said making the weight was surprisingly easy for him and he felt incredible. You could see it in the ring with Froch. He fought very well in the early rounds before he slowed down. Froch is a tough nonstop fighter and by those later rounds the age was catching up to Glen. If I hear anything more I'll let you know. Just last week I heard if he could get the right fight he would be back. I'm pretty sure we will see more of him.
