Wladimir Klitschko, Juan Manuel Marquez and Tim Bradley have all recently retired. All three have been important to boxing's recent history to slightly varying degrees. Sadly the odds are at least one of them will return to the ring at some point, but for now we celebrate their retirement.

Retirement in the real world is strange enough, but in boxing the word "retirement" takes on several different meanings and connotations. What are some of the most famous retirements? Who retired far too many times? Who retired far too late? Who never did?

This week on Knuckles and Gloves Boxing Radio, Compubox operator Aris Pina and boxing historian Patrick Connor will give proper attention to the careers of Klitschko, Marquez and Bradley, and discuss some of the more famous instances of retiring in boxing history.
