2017 - A Big Year for Retirements (Poll)

2017 has been an interesting year for the sport of boxing in many ways. Up until now, we have seen some big fights and the return of marquee fighters, such as Manny Pacquiao, to basic cable and free television. As the boxing and MMA worlds gear up for the big circus show on August 26th, I wanted to take some time to reflect on the numerous fighters who have walked away from the fight game, and who have announced their intentions to retire this year. So far we have seen retirement announcements from Robert Guerrero,  Wladimir KlitschkoJuan Manuel MarquezTyson Fury, Timothy Bradley, and "Sugar" Shane Mosley. Miguel Cotto also announced that 2017 will be his last year in the ring.

With all of these retirements finalized, and on the horizon, I wanted to ask our readers which boxer are YOU most disappointed to see retire? Please vote in our poll (just below the SoundCloud gadget on the right), and feel free to leave a comment explaining your vote!
