Absolutely. I was one of them.

I always get that way when fighters make comebacks like that old age (In boxing terms).

You could see that he could still take a hell of a punch though. I wasn't worried he'd get too hurt but I was worried he'd get embarrassed.

Can you imagine prime George fighting like that. I have never been able to match the picture with the face
