    I may be wrong, but does he really end his career ? Seems to me that he will just not participate to some event in Monaco.

    yes i've just read the full declaration but this article said his career is finished http://allstarmuaythai.com/2014/05/04/merci-mr-damien-alamos/

    it's very bizarre in addition the comments on the FB of Damien seems to be saying that his career is over

    he said personal problem

    probably his girlfriend or family influence him, or maybe he doesnt like fighting anymore, doesnt want to get beat up for a living

    I'm not always in the mood to watch his style, but the kid is crazy talented, lots of luck in everything.

    Wasn't the reason that he was having a kid or something? Or was that just a rumor?

    At any rate, I wouldn't be surprised if he were still sore about being stripped of his Lumpinee title for failure to make weight last year.

    He really does stop fighting. I had the confirmation from a very close source. Mostly family reasons made him make that decision

    Congrats for all your career Damien, you can be proud of yourself, and you reached your ultimate dream by beign a Lumpinee champ. Good luck in all your present and future projects

    we don't know what the reason is, but if the financial reward was great, chances of sticking around at this young age would be higher

    but he's still young, he might come back

    I saw this on wiki with no citation and assumed it was trolling. Guess not.

    Also when did Brock get banned? What was the nail in the coffin for him?

    The thread about Kizaemon Saiga getting married did it.

    ^Ah, just saw that. He really went full retard in that one. Part of me will miss his squabbling, but this place should be a lot more peaceful now.

    How so?

    Sad that he ended his career but I'm happy for him that he knows what he's doing with his life.

    I'm simply baffled how people suddenly believes in medieval religion used to control people... 1400 years ago!
