Felix Trinidad To "Officially" Announce Retirement

By Mark Vester

Felix Trinidad Sr, father and trainer of Felix "Tito"" Trinidad, says that his son will soon announce his retirement. Trinidad has been out of the ring since last January's decision loss to Roy Jones Jr. The fight with Jones was his first in nearly three years. Trinidad has retired twice in the past. The first time was in 2002. He returned in 2004 and retired again in 2005 after his loss to Winky Wright.

"He is going to announce [his plans] to everyone in Puerto Rico, but I understand that retirement should be the decision. The truth is that "Tito" has not visited the gym since he fought with Roy Jones. Tito does not have anything left to show. He has done it all. He fought with the best, he was champion in three divisions," Trinidad Sr. told Primera Hora.
