    Everyone thinks they're immune to what time does.

    He looks good physically ...... But so did Ali before he faced Holmes.
    Leonard before he faced Norris and Camacho, Holyfield
    before he faced Toney, Jones Jr. before he faced
    Tarver, Johnson, Hopkins, Green ,Lebedev ,
    etc etc etc, Father Time isn't very kind to
    to fighters 40 and above.
    Especially when they haven't trained and
    fought in years.......

    Ibeabuchi unlike them fighters though has had no wear and tear, hes just been in prison chilling with no fights that have deteriorated him. And judging by that footage he keeps himself in good shape.

    Now obviously I know he won't comeback and do anything, hes almost 50 so its ridiculous. But I wouldn't mind seeing him against a low level ranked opponent just to see how he looks.

    Agreed, that fact could be one saving grace.
    I thought he was still in prison until I saw the video.

    He doesn’t deserve the payday.

    I am just happy this man is put of prison and free finally and gets some sort of life back.

    As far as his boxing career-I think it would go like Razor Ruddock’s comeback.

    Allow Ike at least one warm up fight: vs Jake Paul. If two warm ups: then follow up with brother Logan before tangling with Mikey.

    I wonder what causes so many 40 to 60 year old fighters to think they can win a world title, when such a tiny numbers have done anything at world level past early 40s

    They mostly don't - it's just about the money. Of course talking it up and aiming high can help get more interest and ..... money.
