    "Champion boxer Danny Green is expected to announce his retirement from the sport at a news conference in Perth this morning.

    He became the world light heavyweight champion in December, defeating Croatian Stipe Drews in front of a home crowd.

    Green was due to mount his first title defence at Challenge Stadium against Hugo Garay next month"

    As an aussie sad to see him go. Wish him the best in his post boxing life.

    That's a shame, I was looking forward to the Garay fight, and Green made Stipe Drews look foolish, and also ironically made him retire after their fight.

    I can understand the sentiments of wanting to go out on top, but not when you've already signed for and are training for your next fight.

    But I also wish all the best to him in his retirement.

    I respect his decision. The comment he made that many boxers compete too long I can understand.

    It's just all so sudden!
