Peter Buckley, “the world’s worst boxer,” will retire this weekend after 256 losses, in his 300th fight.
“I’ve had my eye on the 300 mark for a while, and it’s a little milestone I want to achieve, but I don’t want to fight on,” he said. “People keep saying to me that I’ll get a call in a few weeks’ time offering me a fight and I’ll say yes, but I mean it when I say this is it.”
How in the world would anyone license a fighter who lost 256 fights? Buckley kept passing medical inspections, and was a pretty good defensive fighter, apparently. He was only knocked out in a tiny percentage of those losses, which included bouts against Naseem Hamed.
His boxrec entry is AMAZING. EIGHTY-EIGHT straight
losses fights without a win.
I hope he wins this weekend.
