Former World Boxing Association super-flyweight and bantamweight champion Hideki Todaka has decided to retire after failing to fully recover from eye problems, boxing officials said Friday.

Todaka, only the fifth boxer to hold WBA titles in two different weight classes, lost his WBA bantamweight interim title to Mexican challenger Julio Zarate on a 2-1 split decision in his first attempt at a world title defense in March last year.
