‘Britain’s worst boxer, Robin Deakin has finally ended his troubling career after winning just two of 53 fights during his 12-year professional career. The 31-year-old lightweight boxer, who made his debut in 2006, won his first fight and then lost a whopping 50 fights in a row before eventually picking up his second win in 2015.
His decision comes after he lost one more fight, bringing his total to two wins in 53. He said: “I’m announcing my retirement after not being successful and losing brain cells. I can’t take no more. “I have boxed the best in Britain and boxed world title challengers and a world champ in a 55-fight career, that ain’t been the best. I’m proud to say at least I did something people said I couldn’t.”
On his ‘Britain’s Worst Boxer’ title, he added: “Thanks to all the people that slated me and the ones that love me.” “I’m deadly serious – it’s just not worth my time anymore. I have done more than most would ever do in boxing – I just wanted something back. I did it for money and didn’t get enough. I loved entertaining people but I need to earn a living. “I love the sport and will always love it – I’m just not stepping in the ring again.”
