Senator Orrin Hatch hangs up boxing gloves

WASHINGTON D.C. (ABC4 News)- The Senate Republican Conference gave retiring Senator Orrin Hatch one more chance to fight for Utah in a fun farewell video.

Senator Hatch was once an amateur boxer but he laced up his boxing gloves one final time.

He said every good fighter knows when to hang up the gloves.

“I would like to thank the people of Utah for allowing me to fight for them for all of these years. We’ve made it very clear that Utah plays a significant role back here in the United States Senate,” Hatch said.

Watch:

Hatch will be succeeded by Republican Senator-elect Mitt Romney.
