Nishioka Not Sure if He Plans To Continue His Career

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com caught up with former super bantamweight champion Toshiaki Nishioka (39-5-3, 24KOs) after his 9th round TKO loss to Nonito Donaire at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.

The 36 year-old Japanese fighter had previously said that the only fight that motivated him was the Donaire showdown. Now that he has had that fight I asked him if he wanted to continue his career

How comes these guys like Montiel and Nishioka are supposed to be quality champions and opposition for Donaire and then when they fight him they are pondering retirement???

Just retire. Did you see how fast his corner threw in the towel? They're too delicate with Nishioka. They already knew he's on his way out, no need to get hurt when you're about to retire.
