Kevin Satchell Announces His Retirement From Boxing

By Elliot Foster

Kevin Satchell has formally announced his retirement from boxing.

The former British, Commonwealth and European flyweight champion revealed the news on Wednesday.

Satchell, 29, hasn’t fought since June 2016 and has been agonising over the decision.

But the undefeated man (16-0, 3 KOs) has insisted that he has no plans to fight again.

“I’m retired now. I have no plans to box in the future,” Satchell told World Boxing News recently.

Satchell, who was at one point very close to a world title shot and boxed fellow Liverpudlian Paul Edwards as well as his namesake Chris during a glittering career, says that he will stay around boxing.

“It’s all about my son now and seeing where he can go with his own career,” he added. “He’s 10 in July so he’ll start having kids gloves the following season.

“I’ll be going for my amateur coaching license so I’ll still be around the sport but I won’t by my lad's coach.

“My son will be under my former amateur and professional coach Paul Stevenson so he’s in good hands anyway.

“I’m happy with what I achieved in my career with Paul and I’d like to take this chance to say thanks to the Everton Red Triangle who have looked after me since I was 12. I couldn't have got where I got without them.”

It's a pity, he's only one notch away from a Lonsdale belt out-right which is some achievement. Also it's a pity there's so many casual's out there who have never heard of him!
