The Argentinean brawler Marcos Maidana has retired after a 40 fight, 12 year career.

Maidana hangs up his gloves winning the WBA World Title at two weights, Welterweight and Super-Lightweight.

BoxNation viewers will recall his most recent duels from being the man who pushed Floyd Mayweather during their first encounter back in May 2014.

Fans will rejoice in his all action style which saw several wars of attrition on the Channel of Champions in years gone by including dropping Adrien Broner in 2013 on the way to picking up the second of his World Titles.

Speaking through an official statement, ‘Chino’ revealed:

“After a long time out of the ring and thinking a lot since my last fight, I have decided to hang up my gloves. I’m very proud and deeply grateful to the sport for everything. Today, I no longer have the motivation, the sacred fire that is required. And so I announce my retirement."
