Video at link.

He still has good skills and speed for a 66 year old.

The gym he is at in the video is just down the road from me. I sometimes see him walking around.

Yeah right. He may feel good now but he just not gonna mix it anymore with a young one. Plus could be very dangerous for him when he gets hit. Great champ leave it at that. Phone Post

I am starting to think that boxing is an addiction, that once it gets in your blood, it is nearly impossible to ever get out. Fuck, I am pushing 40 and I still reflexively want to shadow box everytime that I see my reflection. 20 years ago I use to think that it was comedically sad when I would hear one of my 40 year old trainers talking about fighting again. Now that I am close to the ages that they were then, I still have to fight the urge every now and than to take a few more fights before calling it quits.

Nothing makes one feel more alive than trading punches with another.

I can imagine him sparring at that age, but taking full blooded punches with bad intentions is another thing. Unless he's a very sprightly 66 i can see this getting embarrassing very quickly.
