Willie Limond Says New Year Could Be His Last in Boxing

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.”
