Future Hall of Famers retire from boxing

MOVING ON: Wright (left) and Mosley

TWO OF boxing’s most celebrated fighters of the 21st century have both announced their retirements in the space of 24 hours from one another.

On Monday (June 4), ex-lightweight, welterweight and light-middleweight world titlist ‘Sugar’ Shane Mosley announced his retirement from pugilism.

And following on from Mosley’s retirement, former undisputed light-middleweight champion Ronald ‘Winky’ Wright hung up his gloves yesterday (June 5) just days after his unanimous defeat to Peter Quillin on June 2.

The boxers fought each other twice in 2004 with Wright, 40, winning on points on both occasions.

The Saint Petersburg, Florida, native, who fought in Britain three times in the 90s, leaves boxing with a record of 51 wins (25 K.Os) and six losses.

Mosley last fought in May against unbeaten Mexican Saul Alvarez and lost via a unanimous points verdict.

The 40-year-old Mosley retires with a record consisting of 46 wins (39 K.Os), eight losses and one draw.
