Default How old is Matt Skelton?

Every time i read an article about Matt Skelton his age seems to change.

How old is he 45? 48? 50?

Lirva mentioned on the post about Eugene Maloney that he received

threats from Maloney when taking the piss over Skeltons real age.

Could Skelton be the oldest Heavyweight in the World to fight for a

credible title ?

He's a 146 years old, looks a lot older though to be fair to him.

He's 46 in January according to his birthdate on boxrec and prison record which says is Jan 1967. Why the **** he tells everyone he's younger is weird cos either age is ancient and who the **** cares anyway as he is gonna get sparked and hopefully get the hell away from the boxing scene as he was garbage even when he was younger.

Just imagine what a laughing stock British boxing would be if he was British champ! God help us all as boxing could not get any lower!

In the Price vs Harrison 'fight', Bunce & Lillis none to subtely implied that he is a good couple of years older than his 'stage age' of 45.

48 was their guess ....

Has there ever been a more embarrassing match up for the British & Commonwealth Heavyweight titles in recent memory?

I certainly can't recall one

He used to date David Haye's granny if that helps the issue at all?!

I think he must be pushing 50.

I followed him from his early days on Sky and I am pretty sure that when he fought Big Bob Mirovic in 2004 the commentators (probably Darke and McCrory) were already banging on about how hold he was, saying he was 42 or 43?

Now you do the maths!

I'd pretty sure he is NOT 46.

Thats what i was thinking he has got to be around 50. Forget Boxrec etc

they dont require the fighters passport as proof of age.
