At the age of 26, a British boxer dubbed “one of the brightest young stars in the world” retires.

Kash Farooq, a British boxer, has announced his retirement at the age of 26.

Due to “unforeseen circumstances,” Kash Farooq, who was signed to Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing promotional company, has hung up his gloves for good. Farooq was dubbed “one of the brightest young stars in world boxing” by Hearn last year.

Matchroom, on the other hand, has confirmed that their rising star will no longer be entering the ring.

“Our best wishes go out to @kashfarooq, who has unfortunately had to retire due to unforeseen circumstances,” the statement read.

“Without a doubt, he was destined for World glory.

A top man and a fantastic fighter.

“For @StAndrewsSC, Kash will now serve as Head of Talent.”

Farooq finished his 17 bantamweight fights with an impressive 16 wins (six by KO) and only one loss.

His most recent victory came in August of last year at Matchroom HQ’s Garden, where he defeated Luis Castillo Castillo by unanimous decision.

Farooq leaves the sport with a 16-1 record (six by KO) and only one loss in 17 bantamweight fights.

In August of last year, at Matchroom HQ’s Garden, he won a unanimous decision over Luis Castillo Castillo.

Prior to that victory, Hearn detailed his strategy for getting Farooq to the top.

“Kash is one of the brightest young stars in the sport, not just in the bantamweight division,” he said.

“These are the types of fights Kash needs, people who are coming to win, people who are going to be aggressive and put him to the test.”

“Now that I think about it, I think we should be looking at world title shots at the end of the year.”

This will serve as a good yardstick for determining where we stand.”
