Statement from Michael Gomez regarding the outcome of the investigation

17.02.06 - By Michael Gomez: Iím delighted that that the investigation is completed and that I have been cleared. Thereís no way Iíd ever be involved in anything like a fixed fight. If anyone thinks Iíd be involved in something like that then why donít they come and spar a few rounds with me. Iíll show them just how tough boxing is because I think sometimes people think itís easy to get in that ring. After a few rounds with me they might understand what a boxer has to go through in there..

Iím a proud warrior and anyone whoís watched me down through the years knows that. No disrespect to Peter McDonagh but Iíve been boxing for over 20 years and that catches up with your body.

All those years of hard training, making weight and getting into wars in the ring caught up with me and that's all that happened.

Iím sorry for all my supporters but I had to make that decision in the fight for myself and my family. Boxing is too tough a sport if youíre hearts not in it.
