As BoxingScene.com previously reported, former WBO middleweight world champion Andy Lee announced his retirement from boxing.
Lee (35-3-1, 24 KOs) appeared on the Off The Ball program and announced his retirement from the sport.
The veteran, still only 33 years old, has been out of the ring since last March.
He was in the discussion as a possible opponent for Daniel Jacobs on April 14th, but the two sides were not on the same bar when it came to the financial end and the fight never happened.
Lee lost his WBO title in December of 2015, when he was dropped twice and lost a twelve round majority decision at the hands of Billy Joe Saunders, who still holds the belt.
He didn't return to the ring until March 2017 at New York's Madison Square Garden as part of the Gennady Golovkin vs. Daniel Jacobs undercard. He won a eight round decision over KeAndrae Leatherwood, but he didn't look that good in the fight.
"It's a good decision, it's a good moment and to go out on my own terms and not be retired in the ring - a lot of fighters lose it that way but it's time now - it's the right time," Lee told Off The Ball.
"I'm thirty-three years old. I've achieved everything I've wanted to in the game - I've had an amazing career and an amazing life through boxing. It has defined my life, it has defined who I am but it's the right time to call it a day. It has been on my mind for a while. Over the last two years I've kept myself available. I fought in March of last year, I won that fight and I just kept myself available to see what my options were if a fight came along that would entice me back.
"None of the fights and none of the offers were good enough or big enough to get me to go back and I have responsibilities now as a father - to leave my wife and my daughter, it would take a big fight to get me to do that, to leave them, to go away training and to put myself through all that.
"If I was single with no child - I probably would have been back in the gym straight away after the fight with Billy Joe Saunders but I took a decision to take some time off and then we had the baby so that's been the best thing and that's really my priority right now."
