Olympic silver medalist Kenneth Egan announced his decision to retire from boxing on Friday night and the boxer popped in to studio today to tell Joe Molloy why he made the decision.
"I was training very hard for the national finals," said Egan. "But whether I won, lost or drew the fight [with Joe Ward] I was still going to retire. I had my mind made up in early January when I was in a training camp in Spain.
"I have come to the end. I have done it all, I've travelled and fought all over the world in amazing competitions and I have many medals at home. I don't want to be one of these lads that's hanging around for the sake of it. It's fitting to retire on senior finals night because that's where it all started for me."
Joe Ward was speaking on Newstalk Sport yesterday and suggested that Egan would make a great coach.
"There's an awful lot of boxers who don't make good coaches," according to Egan. "I don't know whether I would make a good coach yet but I'd like to give it a go. I know what it's like to be at Olympics and the effects it has when you come back from the games. But if I was to start off on the coaching role it would be on a junior team."
