Obsolete = "no longer in use".
Not the ideal word for what I mean but the best I can think of.

They dont have 13th and 14th rounds now, that's the extent of what I'm saying.

Comparing Galento to the "king of the four rounders" is insane when you consider that Galento went longer distances than any active fighter has, barring perhaps only Holyfield and maybe some other old (45+ year old) veterans who went 15.
