Four-time world champion Juan Manuel Marquez is set to bring his 24 Year Career to an end if reports are to be believed.
Marquez who made his debut in 1993 will put the full stop to a career which will lead him to the boxing hall of fame.
It is thought Marquez will make it official today during a telecast of Golpe a Golpe following in the footsteps of Wladimir Klitschko, Robert Guerrero and potentially Tim Bradley who have all recently brought the curtain down on their career.
Marquez has stood at the top of the boxing world for years but it will be his knockout of Manny Pacquiao in 2012 which he will be best remembered, bringing the series of fights between the two men to a close in brilliant fashion.
Initial reports of an end of year contest with Miguel Cotto was talked about but due to his ongoing knee injuries, he will now turn his undivided attention to his role as an analyst for ESPN Deportes and ESPN Mexico.
Marquez will retire with a record of 56-7-1, 40 KO’s.
