5. Yep.
If he fights again, it will be a case of his being the "opponent." A promoter will look to feed him to some young fighter on the way up, who might have a lot more punching power than he had coming at him last night.

I felt bad for him. The saying about old fighters came to mind: "I could see the openings, but couldn't get the punches off; I could see the punches coming, but couldn't get out of the way." If he doesn't retire, then the time comes when you don't see the punches coming, and that really hurts.
