By Edward Chaykovsky

Commonwealth junior welterweight champion Willie Limond (37-4, 10KOs), 34-years-old, is considering the possibility of retirement in 2014 - unless a significant title shot comes along. Last year, Limond captured the vacant Commonwealth title with a first round TKO of previously undefeated Eddie Doyle. He came back later in the year to win a twelve round unanimous decision over Mitch Prince.

“I have to be realistic and say this could be my last year. It is a tough decision but I have been a pro for 16 years so it’s just getting to the stage where I have to say enough is enough," Limond told Daily Record.

“I feel great and could do the same things until I am 40 and over but I just think the time has come to quit while I’m ahead. I have aspirations to finish in style. I still want another shot at the British and European. I would like to get a shot at the world title but I have to be realistic.

“If it hasn’t happened by now then it’s unlikely to happen this year.”

Mature decision Willie. Go out on your own terms. People forget that in this sport that winning any sort of traditional title, such as the Commonwealth is a huge achievement. Willie is a solid pro and can be proud of his achievements.
