Andy Lee: A bloody good fighter, an even better man

Former WBO world middleweight champion Andy Lee announced his retirement yesterday and the boxing world is a poorer place without him, writes Elliot Worsell
Andy Lee

ANDY LEE has retired from boxing and boxing, as a result, is today a little less human and a little more stupid than it was yesterday.

The retirement was announced by Lee on Off The Ball, an Irish radio station for whom he now works, and was every bit as low-key, classy and dignified as the man himself.

Blink and you’d miss it, there won’t be a press release, much less a press conference, nor will he force highlight videos of his finest moments upon us. He will instead leave as he arrived: quietly, humbly and gracefully, to nods of appreciation.
