On Tuesday, Argentinian former titlist Marcos Maidana announced his resignation from the ring after compiling a 35-5 ledger with an astonishing 31 victories coming by way of knockout. "After a long time out of the rings and after giving it a lot of thinking since my last fight, I've decided to hang up the gloves for good,” Maidana announced via his Facebook account. “Only through a great physical and mental effort can you mix in the ring with the best of the world if winning is your goal. And I always wanted to win. Today I do not feel motivated enough, do not have the fire inside me to intend to climb those mountains again. That is why I announce my retirement."
