By Per Ake Persson

Sauerland Event matchmaker Hagen Doering confirmed reports that heavyweight Edmund Gerber (23-2, 14KOs) and light heavyweight Dustin Dirks (27-1-1, 20KOs) have retired.

Dirks was knocked out by Oleksandr Cherviak in the tenth round in April and then went to a very disappointing eight round draw with Tomas Adamek (not the popluar two division world champion) in August.

Gerber lost two of his last three outings. He dropped a ten round majority decision to aging British veteran Michael Sprott last December and then he was stopped in five rounds on September 21 in his fight with Dereck Chisora.

[QUOTE=Sparked_26]Definitely makes sense for Gerber. Unless he was popular enough for a promoter to match him against a certain type of opposition for the rest of his career. The moment he turned up in London to Del Boy that really must have been **** or bust. Good luck to him![/QUOTE]he l...

[QUOTE=joe strong]interesting move by gerber but after losses to sprott & chisora I guess he realized he had gone as far as he could in the sport & got out before he got hurt. it wouldn't surprise me if the abdusalamov situation will get other HWs thinking about early retirements when they get as...
