Holly Holm announces boxing retirement

Stunning local media and New Mexico, 14-time, three-division world boxing champ Holly Holm (32-2-3, 9 KOs) announced her retirement in boxing today at a luncheon held in Albuquerque. The retirement will follow her May 11th fight against Mary “Merciless” McGee (20-1, 11 KOs) at Route 66 Casino. “It’s a hard decision, but I need to keep that spark and passion,” said Holm. “MMA is where it’s at for me now.”
