BOXING: Darren Barker Set to Retire


Simple Minded
Mar 8, 2010
At the ballet.
Not sure if anyone watched this at the weekend. But it looks like Darren Barker is set to retire after just one (unsuccesful) defence of his recently aquired IBF Middleweight belt.

According to Simms he's popped his hip again and it looks like curtains for him. Such as shame as he's always been one of my favourite boxers, in and out of the ring, and he'd worked so hard to win the belt from Geale. He's genuinely one of the most unlucky men around, suffering injury, attacks and personal tragedy, and yet overcame them all to the win the world title, only to lose it in a horrible fashion at the first attempt and he'll probably lose his career too.
