    Default The Fountain of youth?

    Boxing looks like it has found the fountain of youth with all these old champions

    Hopkins
    Calazaghe
    Campbell
    Casamayor
    Forrest
    Wright
    etc

    along with a slew of old contenders who still perform on an elite level

    Mosley
    De La Hoya
    Tarver
    Mayorga
    Toney
    Holyfield
    etc

    Thanks man, I have been watching boxing since the mid 80's and I never remember this many fighters in their 30's (or early 40's) in the mix, fighter around 32 or 33 use to fade slowly back then

    It might be a sign that fighters careers are better managed these days, and that they dont fight as often. Better diet and fitness helps a lot of these guys fight longer.

    Also interesting to note all the guys except Mayorga on your list arent brawlers, and most use either good defense or speed to win their matches.

    Mayweather was countering the jab, and it wasn't landing very much that is why Oscar hardly used it, he wasn't able to set anything up with it, and he is was muffling his attack when he got Mayweather on the ropes because he would be too close.

    It amazes me how many of the divisions top fighters are 35 plus and I never though a top p4p guy would be 43, but hell Saoul Mambys fighting at 60 I believe anything is possible now in boxing.
