By or provided from SecondsOut.com on Doghouse Boxing. Former British and Commonwealth light middleweight champion Ryan Rhodes has announced his retirement after 17 years as a professional.

  The 35 year-old from Sheffield, decided to call it a day after losing to Sergey Rabchenko for the vacant European light middleweight title via 7th round tko on June 16.

  During a highly successful 17 year career Rhodes amassed a 46-6-(31), record and should be proud of the fact he was a double champion but speaking to the Sheffield Star Rhode said he would be forever haunted by his three world title defeats  

“It (the world title losses) will haunt me forever but I have won everything else,” admitted Rhodes. “I won the British and European titles. My aim was to win the British title and I achieved that and I fought for the European title.

“Of course, there is going to be disappointment but I have had a fantastic career.” .
