Default Who was the older fighter to be in a professional bout?

So, I was watching "Rocky Balboa" the other day and it got me thinking. I know Archie Moore was very old but there was some controversy regarding his real age. That Bozella guy was 52, I think. The oldest one who, at least, talked about stepping into the ring was Foreman, who wanted to challenge Vitali in 2003. Foreman was 53 back then. Do you have any other examples?

Last fought at the age of 61. Would be surprised if someone could find anyone older.
As for someone more people will know about, Larry Holmes fought Butterbean at 52.

The guy was three months away from his 61st birthday and still fighting. That's got to be the winner there. I know he was a champion but it's an interesting case considering that most boxers, still in their 40's, have trouble getting licensed.

thats what Im talking about... zab judah should hire him on the spot, as chin trainer.. I bet at near 70 Mamby can still take a punch better than Zab or Khan.. oh and that was a TKO not a KO and he was 46 years old at the time, Im telling you this Mofo can take a punch
