Evander Holyfield narrowly lost a boxing match that would have made him the oldest heavyweight champion ever, at 46, SkySports is reporting.

You know, 46 is not that old — especially when you can see it in your rearview mirror, like me.


Still, for a boxer, 46 is past your prime.  But if your prime is really, really good, then being past it is pretty good.

“Old” guys everywhere are playing the “Rocky” theme in their heads now.
