Yutaka Niida was a young and unknown Japanese fighter when he shocked two-time world champion Chana Porpaoin to capture the WBA Strawweight title.  Niida won his only world championship after only 17 professional fights.  Niida then unexpectedly retired and gave up his title. He said he wanted to be a farmer in Japan.  Maybe the pressure got to him and he couldn't handle things, but nobody will know.  We can only wish the best of luck to this retired, undefeated champion and we can only imagine how good he could have been.
