Former super-middleweight champion Joe Calzaghe retired from boxing Thursday after winning all his 46 professional fights.

"I've got no other goals to go for," he said. "That's why I am calling it a day."

The 36-year-old Welshman outpointed Roy Jones Jr. in November in his last fight of a 16-year professional career.

Calzaghe held the WBO super middleweight world title for more than 10 years, unifying the title against Mikkel Kessler in April 2007, before moving up to light heavyweight to fight Bernard Hopkins and Jones.

Often when I see a boxer announcing retirement it just makes me think they know how much more dough they can make through a big "comeback" fight, and have no intention of never fighting again.

Unfortunately I dont think its the case this time

Sucks.
