Robert Woge Decides To Retire From Boxing

By Per Ake Persson

German light heavyweight Robert Woge (12-1) has announced his retirement. Woge tells Mitteldeutsche Zeitung that health and family goes before anything else. Woge was last seen in October 2013 losing the IBF I/C title to Anatolij Dudchenko and finished - as usual - badly busted up.
 
Robert Woge was a fighter´s fighter, a man who relied on his punch, workrate and willingness to take a punch to give one and almost every fight - amateur or pro - was very exciting to watch but didn´t make for a long career and wars with the likes of Hakim Zoulikha, Dariusz Sek and Dudchenko took their toll.

Fact is that every fight I saw Woge in was a pure pleasure watch but was also overly exciting and Robert makes a wise decision in calling it a day. Robert was managed by Moritz Klatten and promoted by Sauerland Event.

Very smart decision. Power and conditioning was all he ever had and that will not make you a millionaire.
