In a recent article by Eddie Daniels for the The Tampa Tribune, Jeff Lacy reveals the reason he says he is retiring from boxing. Lacy feels the money he was offered to fight Jermain Taylor was an insult.

Lacy tells the Florida based publication that before he even fought Epifanio Mendoza last week, he was offered $500,000 to fight Taylor. Lacy who went on to defeated Mendoza with a majority decision, said the purse was then upped to $550,000.

Lacy tells the Tampa Tribune: "What do I look like fighting a fight of that caliber for $550,000 when I have more to risk than anything. I feel like Taylor needs me more than I need him and what do I look like fighting that fight for $550,000 and risking my life in there like I did Wednesday night because the referee is not on top of this guy hitting me in the back of the head."
