IN 2015 we saw older boxers become unstuck in mega fights. The 35-year-old Miguel Cotto lost on points to Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, then Tyson Fury took out Wladimir Klitschko, 13 years his senior.

Age didn’t seem to affect Floyd Mayweather against Manny Pacquiao or Andre Berto,  he finished his career unbeaten at 39 years old.
