“I love this sport, but I owe it to my family to quit putting them through these moments. Thank you all, whether you were with or against me, you made me who I am, but it’s time. Semper Fi, salute.” Those words were tweeted by one of the most respected men in boxing – former WBO junior lightweight champion Jamel Herring. The former U.S. Marine, who served not one but two tours in Iraq, had just dropped a unanimous decision to Jamaine Ortiz on Saturday. It was Herring’s second loss in a row, having previous lost his title to Shakur Stevenson last October. At thirty-six year of age, enough was a enough. Here’s hoping the fighter known as “Semper Fi” has a long and fruitful retirement.
