Boxing: Lucas Matthysse announces retirement

Lucas Matthysse has decided to hang up the gloves following his defeat to Manny Pacquiao last month.

The Argentine, nicknamed 'La Maquina', spent years as a leading contender in the welterweight and super-lightweight divisions before finally becoming a world champion at the third attempt when winning the WBA title at 147lbs earlier this year.

Matthysse, who turns 36 in September,
retires with a career record of 39-5 (36 KO).

In an Instagram post, Matthysse said: "Thanks to all those who followed me in my career, for all of their love, because that is the most beautiful thing in this sport of boxing, which is a nice environment.

"Today, I decide to hang up the gloves because another stage in my life is coming.

"And many thanks to all of the people that I met thanks in boxing."
