Cory Spinks is Set To Retire From Boxing, Says Christy
Christy Spinks, the wife of former two division champion Cory Spinks, sent a message to BoxingScene.com that indicates that her husband is hanging up the gloves. Spinks (39-8, 11KOs) lost a twelve round decision to Carlos Molina this past Friday in Chicago. Spinks has gone 3-5 in his last eight fights, including two TKO defeats to current IBF champion Cornelius "K9" Bundrage.
"Friday night, February 1, 2013, was Spinks' last fight.....no more. As a wife I knew some fights ago that my husband wasn't himself. Any time you let K9 Bundrage beat you twice something is definitely wrong, because K9 Bundrage has absolutely no talent. My husband has given all that he could to his boxing career. As a wife I will not allow him to put himself through this again. I'm stepping up because we have a beautiful 4 year old daughter that adores him and while he still has his health to play with my baby,I have to keep it that way. The Spinks family has nothing to prove anymore; everybody knows our name and our history."
"We will forever have boxing in our hearts. Cory will have to leave that to the younger guys and I'm so happy that he realizes this now. We thank you, everyone that gave us support and showed us love. God has a different plan and I know it's something good because he has never failed my family. I am happy that my husband is retiring because nothing is worth your speech and body malfunctioning. Life does go on. [We] love all you guys and take care."
