ON his 36th birthday, former cruiserweight world title challenger Ola Afolabi has announced his retirement from boxing.

The Los Angeles-based Londoner held the WBO interim title twice, but was unable to win a full title during his thrilling career. His record stands at 22-5-4 (11).

He debuted in 2002 with no amateur experience and drew with fellow novice Gerard Barber in his first fight – though admits he thinks he actually lost – and picked up a couple more draws along the way.
