Former IBF strawweight champion Muhammad Rachman (37) says he won’t retire because he feels he still has better skill and stamina than the younger fighters. “If I weren’t hurt, I could knockout Oleydong (Sithsamarchai),” said Rachman, who suffered severe bleeding due to cuts caused by headbutts in rounds three, seven and eleven. “No, I’m still curious to be a world champion once again. I hurt Oleydong in round ten, so I feel I’m still capable of being a world champion again,” replied Rachman when asked about his retirement. “The cut in round eleven is too deep, so it was stopped and went to the scorecards, although I think Oleydong shall be disqualified because he did it on purpose,” added Martinez dos Santos, Rachman’s manager. Team Rachman is now studying how to conduct a rematch, if possible, in Indonesia in Rachman’s homeland.
