Clinton Woods to retire

37-year-old former IBF light heavyweight champion Clinton Woods has announced his retirement after losing against Tavoris Cloud on August 28. “Cloud was a really good fighter and he’s young, while maybe I’m too old for that level,” Woods told the Sheffield Star. “In my hey-day I would have beaten him, but I have no excuses and I think my love affair with boxing is over. I wouldn’t have chosen to have gone out with a defeat, but I never took a beating….it was good while it lasted and I am happy with what I achieved.”

From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
