Anthony Fowler has announced he has officially retired from boxing at the age of 32.
The Liverpudlian confirmed his decision in a video posted to his social media on Monday afternoon.
Alongside the 2:45 clip, Fowler posted a short caption confirming he’s now walking away from the sport to focus on spending time with his family.
“I’m now officially retired”, Fowler wrote. “Big thanks to everyone who’s helped and supported me in my career, it’s a tough tough sport an I respect every fighter and you all should too.
“I’m excited for the rest my life watching my gorgeous family grow up.”
Fowler turned professional in May 2017 following a successful amateur career which culminated in competing at the Rio Olympic Games the year before.
After 18 fights, Fowler boasted 16 wins, 12 inside the distance and lost on only two occasions.
His most recent performance came in February last year where he returned to winning ways with a comfortable ten-round decision, four months after an eighth-round stoppage defeat to Liam Smith in an intense Liverpool derby.
