But if Archie Moore's age is in dispute still to this day I imagine anything is possible.
It was easier to get away with in those days though. See Sonny Liston.

I think in terms of "boxing age" that may be true. Mike has been involved with it since age 13 so I'm sure everyone agrees that he had matured very early in the ring. And, after all the layoff's and mismanagement he was well past the Tyson we knew when he was in his 30's...

Teddy Atlas says Cus D showed him Tyson's birth certificate because Teddy didn't believe he was only 12 years old (200lbs of muscle, knocking out men, etc).
