    JLB was such a killer in his prime.

    One of my favourite ever fighters, but he needs to hang them up.

    He fared pretty well against future HW boxing contender Matt Skelton here. Using his own boxing skills.

    Aerts is still at it.... He definitely doesn't need the money the old dog is just addicted to training and competing. At least he's fighting low level opposition though. He could probably beat a guy like this at 60.

    JLB is still active too.... Still continuing his retirement bum tour which seemed to have begun aeon's ago. He's 3-0 this year.

    Most recent bout a few weeks ago.

    Opponent aside.... JLB is letting off some nice combos and displaying a high level of skill for a guy his age here. @IntentionalButt

    I wonder what the highest level of opponent he could beat is? Clearly he's still several levels above this kind of competition as well as the golden age K-1 stars which are still lingering around(Aerts, Mo etc) There are definitely moments in these where you can see how much he's slowed down and that a top guy would destroy him but for a 46 year old with a ton of miles 20+ years of brutal kickboxing? It's damn impressive.

    Speaking of Mo this same guy took a close and possibly controversial win over him recently.

    Crazy to think JLB and Aerts are still competing after all the brutal wars they've been through. Both their bodies must be absolutely wrecked, and I wonder the sorts of aches and pains they must feel on a daily basis. Aerts won his first title when he was like 17 or something, and he's nearly 50 now. These old school guys are cut from a different cloth.
