According to a report published by the Sun UK, Joe Calzaghe who is set to face Bernard Hopkins on April 19th in Las Vegas, plans to quit boxing by the end of this year. Calzaghe's reason for quitting is he is too lazy. Calzaghe plans on fighting two more times and then he's finished with Boxing.

Quoted by the publication, Calzaghe stated he was too lazy to keep on going and he knows when enough is enough. "I’m too effing lazy to keep fighting. I know when enough is enough and I’ll be
out of boxing by the end of this year," said Calzaghe.

Calzaghe admits he use to have keep to a routine, but says things have gotten slack. Calzaghe stated: "My routine used to be that after fighting on a Saturday night, I’d be back in the gym first thing on a Monday morning. Now I’m back training after four months."

Calzaghe stated he would have quit boxing after the Kessler fight, but didn't have enough money to retire. "To be honest, after I unified the super-middleweight division by beating Mikkel Kessler I’d have retired then if I had more millions in the bank."

Although Calzaghe plans to retire this year, he admits for the right price he may be convinced to comeback. "Money talks. Who knows? In a few years’ time I might make some ill-advised comeback and get my ass kicked!" stated Calzaghe.
