Julie decides to hang up gloves after LA defeat
PENZANCE kick boxer Julie Kitchen has hung up her gloves after losing her retirement fight on a split decision in Los Angeles on Saturday.
Kitchen, whose career record was 47-9-1 heading in to the fight against fellow Brit Amanda Bell, was ranked world number 1 before her loss to American Miriam Nakamoto this summer.
The 14 time world champion has been a poster-girl for the female kickboxing fraternity since rising to stardom.
Her loss to Scot Kelly, who was seen as an aggressor in the first two rounds before Kitchen gained some ground in the final three, has been put down as an upset.

On her Facebook profile after the weekend fight Kitchen hinted at different things to come.
She wrote: "Heading back home today to be with the family, seems forever I've been away but at the same time America has made me so welcome once again, watch this space.... A few exciting things in the pipe line... mum and daughters time and wife and husband time is much needed."
