Those who are fans of Sergio Martinez would surely be missing him from the rings.

However, they need to concede to the fact that, a fighter needs to retire at the right time, preferably when he is on a high. Sergio followed that trend and gave up his active boxing career in 2015. Sergio decided to hang up his gloves when he was still the middleweight champion in the world category. He is considered the Argentine star. His retirement was announced in Canastota in New York during the Hall of Fame event. Martinez gave a good speech when he retired, stating that it was time for him to find new horizons in his life.

The speech that he gave was touching and inspiring. It was a just time for him to retire at age forty. In his last fight on June 2014 he dropped off around three times and lost to Miguel Cotto. It was evident that his health was failing and his knee was in bad condition. Martinez announced his retirement in the special weekend event and everyone in media bid him a grand farewell, stating that his elite skills in fighting and his professionalism were qualities admired by all and would be missed for sure.

Sergio is remembered for all his accomplishments. For instance the middleweight championship that he won in an HBO fight was a world landmark event in boxing. Sergio is also respected and admired as an individual who is rare among fighters. He campaigned against the trend of bullying and wanted to use his celebrity status to influence many. He has six wins between the periods of 2010 to 2013. Sergio is truly missed among his fans. But it is also important for a fighter to know when to stop and to pursue other interests.
