To you but not to me. Hopkins broke that shit down perfectly. Age matters to fans, people need something to talk about. He always talks about how people say when will he get old? It matters to some but not to all

Age is literally just a number, and some fans of athletes tend to just by into it. And MG, your completely right, age don't mean shit. Taking care of yourself and putting in the time and dedication to stay sharp and perfect your craft does. If someone focuses on age and thinks it's a factor then they've already lost


He's the exception to the rule. There's a reason why he "broke" a record.... Even if there were plenTY of people (which there are not) that put in the dedication and had the IQ of BHop they still wouldn't be guaranteed to emulate what he has done with the same amount of success against professionals. He's "special" and has been for quite a while. I feel what you are saying though. But his age is something to Marvel at.

He's mentioned Bute and Froch. Well that's a bit pointless as Bute's a nobody, Froch wouldn't be an easy fight though

Sounds like he doesn't want the murat fight anymore. A 24/7 type thing with him and froch would be epic!

His age is something to be marveled at but age doesn't play as much of a factor as some want to make it seem, He's said it and other great athletes have as well

Nah, I saw a vid from this week and he seems like he;s dead set on getting back in there and getting the mandatory out of the way. But a fight between he and Froch would be awesome. I would've liked to see the Bute fight some years back but not now. Bute's damaged goods
