Default Should there be an age limit in boxing ?

I know. This is a controversial one,but the question gets asked all the time. Different fighters age better than others due to styles,ring wars etc. Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier were both shot by the time they got to their late thirties,but George Foreman and Larry Holmes were still comparatively fresh in their forties,albeit slow and way past their peak. Imo,the best way to handle this would be,tough stringent medicals on all fighters. Not cosmetic once overs. If more stringent checks had been applied,maybe Muhammad would have been stopped from taking those last two terrible fights !
