From Ringside Report:

BB: After the Duran fight, you retired. What made you retire when you still had name value and a large fan base?

My 30th birthday was coming up and I had promised my Mother and myself that I would retire from boxing at age 30, no matter what. During this time, I was really unhappy that I couldn't get a rematch with Benitez and unhappy with the politics in boxing. When I retired, I had finished up my Bachelors Degree in Recreational Administration and had taken some acting classes in College. I really wanted to pursue that.
