Boxing-Lennox Lewis's former manager Maloney retires, aged 60


LONDON, Oct 10 (Reuters) - Frank Maloney, mentor of former world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis, has retired after spending more than 30 years in boxing as a manager and promoter.

"For the last year I have gradually fallen out of love with boxing and my passion has been missing," the 60-year-old Maloney said in a news release on Thursday.

"I did much soul searching over the summer and my heart is no longer in the sport that I loved so much. The sport has changed so much over the last few years."

Briton Lewis was world champion when he retired from the ring in 2004, having won 41 of his 44 fights. (Writing by Tony Jimenez; editing by Ken Ferris)
