Harold "Harry" Angus, the greatest cruiserweight fighter of all time and the only cruiserweight to win the world heavyweight title has announced he has retired.
In a hastily arranged press conference Angus told the gathering media, "I have had a fantasic career and after crowning it by avenging my only ever defeat I just don't have the motivation to box on anymore, so I have decided that it is time to hang them up. My hunger to stay in the fight game derived from my passion to finally beat the one man who had beaten me in Lanky Gawn and when I achieved that it was as if I couldn't motivate myself for anyone else. I was waking up in the morning but the buzz to go train just wasn't there....when that happens to a fighter its time to go."
Angus was asked several questions about whether or not he would ever come back and his response was emphatic. "I will only come back for one fight and that is against a man who has continously tried to belittle me but has never had the balls to actually step in the ring with me. CyruS "Touch oF SleeP" ViruS. He is the only fighter I will come back for because he is the one man who can motivate me right now...nobody else has acted so cowardly in the history of the sport and I have always wanted to show that gimmick of a fighter that he couldn't hold a candle to me, he never was good enough to beat me and he never will be good enough to beat me. He is the sorta guy who would turn around and walk away even if he caught me having sex with his wife. He is the sorta guy who would hide in the shadows if he saw his mother being raped. He is a despicable character, a man with no balls, a coward with no heart and a freak show who never boxed the three other fighters who were doing big things when he was active. Now he tries to act up like he is some sorta legend but the truth is he never stepped in the ring with me because he knew I would annihilate him in only a few rounds. He didn't want no part of that because his idea of being a great fighter was to talk shit about great fighters without daring to step into the ring with them. I mean, come on, lets be honest here....he shoulda fought me, he shoulda got in the ring with me and attempted at least to put up a fight but he never did that and although he pretends it doesn't affect him or his legacy, the whole world knows that Touch oF SleeP ducked the fuck outta me and that don't look good at all. I am the thorn in his side, the itch on his ass, the the tumour on his lung! I am living proof that he is a coward. I will fight him at cruiserweight or heavyweight anytime, in any venue under any promotional banner on any TV station anywhere in the world but it won't happen because a duck will always be a duck and the man who likes to think he is some big shot promoter can promote any fight he wants but he will always be denying the fans of the biggest fight ever in the history of the sport. I don't know how he sleeps at night."
Angus was the 3 time world cruiserweight champion...the sports most dominant champion at that weight. He is also the first cruiserweight king to ever win the world heavyweight title and the first fighter to score 40+ wins in his career. A true legend, a true HOF candidate.
Its time to add him to the HOF list.
