It is different for everyone.
someone asking this question has no ****ing clue about boxing. NONE.
Go watch cruling man.
At HW 32ish
Below HW 30ish
Below FW 26ish
I selected other. There's no strict rule. Every fighter is different and if you try to average it will change as you go through the weight divisions.
Trap setting prime (George Foreman, Archie Moore...) around 40, or even 40+
Primes vary per fighter
& fighting styles
But typically it’s when the mental & physical aspects of a fighters skills
through experience & consistent execution “catch up” to each other & work in unison with a fighter’s peaked physical conditioned years,
For perfect harmony.
for most the age is 25ish-32ish
You need to combine experience with physical prime. So I'd say fighters are generally at their very best 30-32 but it does depend on the division.
There's prime for speed and then there's prime for man strength. When we're younger we're like fast monkeys who can take your banana before you know it's gone and count coins. But when we're old if we lived right like a working man we are like slow gorillas who may not be able to catch you but if we do you get your kong donkey punched like hardcore. Real hardcore. You don't come back from something like that if you're a fast little chimpitty dude. Only another gorilla can withstand that ish.
I have never had either any strength or speed. But I have always made up for that with a willingness to sound pitiable. I started out sounding pitiable like a newborn puppy but I then grew into a frail elderly kind of pitiable like an old dying goat. But either way it's like an equalizer the likes of speed of hand and reflex or the strength of back and bicep. I am quite formidable. Always have been.
Much more formidable than the likes of most of you all who rely on simple things, the likes of speed of foot and eye or the strength of muscle and bone.
Why do people vote so much for 26-30? Most professional fighters have like 10 fights at that age.
I believe 31-35 is the golden age for professional boxing and it should be the prime age. After 36 boxers tend to slow down but most of them are pretty fine contenders until 38-39.
In my case, 25.
At 48, I bust a nut in less than a minute.
Charles Bronson (aka Michael Gordon Petterson) is still in prison at 68, probably doing one armed press ups and masturbating with the other until he gets bored.
You should read his solitary fitness book and you won't have that problem lol
In regards to the question. One thing nobody has actually taken into account is lung capacity. It decreases after 35.
But we are talking about boxing. And it really depends on the boxer. But I thought We all knew that right?
Depends on the fighter. Just like in other sports, a running back’s prime is more likely to be at a younger age than a QB.
Some boxers start later and develop later, and some take more punishment. A heavyweight is more likely to be in their prime at a more advanced age than lower weights, but there’s exceptions to that too.
