Had two uncles who boxed , and trained under him, and told me not to get in the ring with him but I didn't listen. Never seen an old man move like that. He humbled me. He was a great fellow.
LOL, the same thing happened to me, early on, with my trainer! He had to be at least 50 y-o at the time, and he took my 20 y-o butt apart. (skill, vs speed & strength) It was massively humbling.
