    Fair point. I still maintain that you need decent athleticism to throw a hard punch and that's not conducive with old age. Unless that power is coming purely from bone mass and bone density which is another matter entirely.

    No way is he is making super middle at his age. Most likely at light heavy I reckon.

    Could probably destroy half of Yarde’s previous opponents.

    In all seriousness though, it’s surely not about the money? So if it’s about the love of the sport and what not surely he would be better suited to going in to coaching/managing/training and passing on his knowledge and passion to the younger generation?

    You’ve got to question what board would give him a license.

    This is a perfect situation where boxing board's can do the right thing for once. Make a stand, set an example, don't licence him.

    If he passes everything he shouldnt be denied.
    As much as I wouldnt want him to do it in the end its his life and like i said if he passes all the tests he shouldnt be denied.
    When Jones fought JC he was shot to pieces and almost what 40 years old and nobody had a problem with that.
    Foreman was how old when he knocked Moore out?
