Rio Ferdinand

Rio Ferdinand je zaključio svoj san o boksačkoj karijeri bez da je ikada nogom stao u ring. Naime, slavni igrač Manchester Uniteda i engleske reprezentacije saznao je da mu je odbijen zahtjev za izdavanje boksačke licence.

39-godišnji umirovljeni nogometaš nesretnu je vijest podijelio u objavi putem Instagrama.



“S obzirom da treniram 4 do 5 puta tjedno otkad sam najavio da planiram postati profesionalni boksač, teškog srca moram objesiti rukavice o klin… Jako sam razočaran ovom odlukom”, rekao je Ferdinad koji nakon više od pet mjeseci boksačkog treninga tvrdi da nikada nije bio u boljoj fizičkoj i psihičkoj formi.

“Boks je fizički težak, zahtjevan i opasan sport. Uvijek sam bio pun poštovanja i nisam podcjenjivao težinu ovog zadatka. Htio sam ljudima pokazati da je u redu pokušati ostvariti svoje snove. Bitno je uvijek ciljati na uspjeh i dati sve od sebe, ali stvari se nekada poslože protiv vas”, napisao je Ferdinand i dodao kako će svejedno nastaviti s treninzima.

Having been training 4-5 times a week since announcing the aim of achieving a professional boxing licence and stepping into the ring, it is with a heavy heart that I am hanging up my gloves on @betfair #DefendertoContender challenge. Despite having never felt better physically or mentally, After notifying the British Boxing Board of Control of my intention to apply for a licence, I have received confirmation that they would not be reviewing my application at this point in time. To say I’m disappointed by this decision is an understatement. To not be given the chance to demonstrate my ability to the BBBoC through the standard assessment afforded to others is hard to take, not only for me, but also to @richie_woodhall, @meldeane12 and the countless others who have dedicated their time to my boxing development over the past five months. Boxing is a physically tough, demanding and dangerous sport. I always gave it my utmost respect and never underestimated how difficult it would be. I wanted to show people that it’s OK to have a goal and strive to reach it. It’s important to approach everything with success in mind, and to give it your all, but sometimes things work against you. This sport has given me a new focus and drive and is something I will continue to do as part of my fitness regime. I’d like to say thank you to Betfair, Richie Woodhall, Duke McKenzie, my team at @neweraglobalsports, the guys at @teamgb Boxing and everyone who has supported me so far. It’s been a great journey.

Vijest je odmah postala predmet sprdnje na društvenim mrežama gdje su pojedinici Ferdinanda ismijali uspoređujući ga s neporaženim velikanima boksa.

“Divim se boksačkom skoru Ria Ferdinanda. Neporažen je poput Floyda Mayweathera i Joea Calzaghea”, jedan je od komentara s weba.

“Kakvu li je karijeru imao Rio Ferdinand! Prerano se umirovio! Svijetu boksa će sigurno nedostajati.”

“Čestitke Ferdinandu koji je najavio zasluženu mirovinu nakon što je neporažen u boksačkoj karijeri koja je trajala gotovo sedam mjeseci. Nevjerojatno.”



“Ne mogu vjerovati da se Ferdinand umirovio iz boksa… uistinu jedan od najboljih koji su ikada kročili u ring.”
