They should change the rules.

30 year old is prime age for a lot of boxers, that's highly unfair for someone with 10-12 years of boxing experience to go fight kids who's 19-21 with 2-3 years of boxing experience.

Is it fair to match young up and coming fighter with youth, speed, strength advantage against a past prime boxer unable to cope in the pro game?

Ya it is, even a past prime fighter around 30-32 should beat up most kids. It is what it is. This is sports. Prime is around 29-32, for a lot of divisions. Obviously fighters vary. But the majority of higher weight fighters peak around 29-32 33ish.

Forget the judges, forget the scoring system.

The biggest farce at the Olympics in terms of boxing is how we have grown ass men beating up kids with limited experience.

Anyone over 30 should either retire or turn pro. It's a joke how they stay around and fight guys in their early 20's rofl.

You can't be over 35, which seems a bit random seeing your past it by then.

I would make it under 25 or your first Olympics.

I 100% agree. 25-26 is it. Nobody during their 'prime age' should be fighting at the Olympics when it comes to boxing. Because boxing is a sport where it really does matter a lot in regards to age.

Why change the rules? The kid can't deal with a prime boxer? Well he's not good enough for the Olympics. Try again in 4/8 years, when you are at your prime. Want to turn pro instead? That's your choice. The prime fighter in the Olympics made the choice of not turning pro so he can get a good shot at an Olympic gold, but will most likely never be a professionnal World Champion.

He beat the living **** out of Dracko in the third, he beat the living **** out of the Italian in the third.

The 3rd is championship rounds. Which means in the pros he will deliver when it matters.

Honestly? Both Dracko and this Italian look like they were gonna be brutally knocked out if it had gone 4-5 rounds.
