Jorge Rodrigo “Hyena” Barrios retires

Citing problems with resuming his career due to legal issues, former world champion Jorge Rodrigo “Hyena” Barrios says he is through with boxing. “I’m definitely hanging up the gloves,” wrote Barrios on his Twitter account (@jorgebarriosok). “I boxed for love, not money…I will not set foot in a boxing event or train fighters. I’m permanently leaving boxing. I’m going to live my life away from boxing.”

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. 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.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
