David Price, the former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion, confirmed his retirement from boxing at the age of 38.
Liverpool have announced the end of their career after a two-year absence from the sport following the defeat of Derek Chisora at the O2 Arena in October 2019.
Price finished with a record of 25 wins, including 20 knockouts and seven losses.
She said BT Sport Boxing: “Well, I didn’t officially announce that I retired, but I did. I will not fight again. You will never see me in a boxing ring again, at least for one match.
“This was officially decided in my mind only about six weeks ago.”
Revealing his reasons for the withdrawal, Price said: “A few factors have intervened.
“Obviously I haven’t fought for two years, so totally inactive.
“The hunger was gone. It’s huge, which is why your elite fighters like Tyson, like Canelo, like AJ, have all the money they’ll ever need.
“But that hunger is still there. This is because they are fighting for glory. The glory was gone in my career. “
Price turned pro in 2009 after securing an Olympic bronze medal at the 2008 Games in Beijing.
He made an explosive entry into the paid ranks, stopping Sam Sexton, Audley Harrison and Matt Skelton from collecting British and Commonwealth belts.
But Price’s progress was hampered by a series of shocking setbacks, even as he nearly scored a dramatic win over former WBA champion Alexander Povetkin in the latter stages of his career.
Merseyside were still able to produce a dominant stoppage win over David Allen in 2019, even though he would be stopped by Chisora a few months later in his last fight.
