27-year old Norwegian featherweight Andreas Evensen, 17-3-1, has decided to retire. Evensen was last seen challenging EBU champ Alex Miskirtchian and was stopped in the twelfth and final round and while the fight was hardfought and relatively even - Andreas looked like the victim of a traffic accident at the end. Previously, Evensen won over Willie Casey in WBA I/C fight but was badly busted up in that fight as well.
Evensen also lost to WBO jr. lightweight champ Ricky Burns.
Andreas was throughout his career managed and trained Helge Waeroy and Waeroy´s methods have been questioned by many Norwegian experts.
