Maccarinelli to retire

Italo-Welsh boxer Enzo Maccarinelli has told the sports press that he is to retire from boxing.
The former WBO World Cruiserweight champion, also known as ‘the Big Mac’ had said before his fight against the unbeaten Russian Denis Lebedev on 18th July that the contest represented “the last chance saloon” in terms of getting his career back on track, following 2 KO losses in his last 3 fights.
“That’s it, there was nothing there on Saturday, that wasn’t me,” the 28-year-old said after the contest.

Macarinelli was born to Italian parents in Swansea in 1980 an attended the Bishop Vaughan Catholic school before taking up his career in boxing.
