End of an era?
I'm starting to feel like this era is coming to an end
Martinez is in the later years of his prime. I'm not sure how long he may have left, especially with his style of boxing
We also saw Cotto lose to Trout, a newcomer onto the top scene. Many calls for him to retire. He seems to want to focus more on his kids.
Vitali's reign seems closer to an end. We've seen our k2 duo since 2008, weird to think how one may retire.
Mayweather may not be fighting much longer, we have yet to see how his jail time has affected him. His outing against Cotto wasn't impressive
We obviously saw Pacquaio knocked out, with calls before the fight that he was fading already. Along with this, we have Marquez who's probably on the edge of retirement, as he admitted yesterday
How could I forget, the great Bernard Hopkins. He broke records, but its impossible to keep going like that without turning into an Ali/Jones, and fighting we past their primes (Thanks to JmH Reborn)
Obviously this isn't everyone, but that's a few top fighters in boxing today.
Perhaps we start a new era very soon?
