With Toney continuing to fight I realize that its really the people in a fighters life who have the best chance in convincing a fighter to quit. I cant see Toney having a happy ending

Nigel Benn:
It was basically his wife and kids who convinced him to stop fighting. Karen gave him a ultimatum either boxing or me, so he walked away
Frazier:
Futch refused to work with him and his family begged him to quit, so he did

Can anyone add anyone else?

Toney is a pretty bad example as he has pretty never been hurt and is known to have saved and invested his money well.

He is seriously slurring his words a definite sign of early brain damage and he refuses to quit.

I'm talking about health not money.
