The legendary Manami Toyota is retiring after thirty years in the ring. Squared Circle Sirens reports that Toyota, who made her professional debut on August 5th, 1987 at the age of sixteen, will have her last match on November 3rd at a special thirty-anniversary show in Japan that is dedicated to her career.
