Old boxers still fighting at a high level is nothing new, Larry Holmes, Ali, Archie Moore were still very good boxers despite their old age. Hopkins is still a dangerous opponent, but he's not the same boxer as he was in his prime or even a 2003 version of Hopkins. His physical skills has been declining since 2005.
