Andre Ward Retires From Boxing

“To the sport of boxing – I love you. You’ve been by my side since I was 10-years-old. You’ve taught me so much,” read part of the 33-year-old’s statement on his official website. “You’ve humbled me. You’ve promoted me. I’ve sacrificed a lot for you, but you’ve given me more than I ever thought possible. You gave me a platform, made me a champion and helped me provide for my family. I am forever grateful to you. You and I will always be synonymous, connected at the hip.”

Why now when he is arguably at his peak? His body said so.

He added, “I want to be clear – I am leaving because my body can no longer put up with the rigors of the sport and therefore my desire to fight is no longer there.”
