Great too see but kind of sad when you take into account even at 89 he still looks better than Chavez Jr did in his recent training video.

I'll say that, what you're saying is sadly untrue.

He seems to sadly be on his way out.

I watched his interview the other day and I'm surprised of healthy and clear minded he is, despite all the punishment he took. He's much more articulate than my 80 year old relatives who never took a punch in their lives.

Apparently an advertisement for some supplement? Kind of sad, hope he at least made a little bank.

Really?Interesting.

I was referring to this interview not to long ago:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7io6DscF3c

He also did a play in theatre recently:

http://theater.nytimes.com/2012/07/2...e-lamotta.html

I belive now with the passing of Jimmy Bivins he is the oldest HOFer alive.Might be wrong.

i hope to meet him before his times comes. hes one of my all time favourites, ive learned a lot from him and still continue to learn.
He was in my local area doing a sit down dinner type of events.

It was great, to be in the presence of such a legend. To hear him tell stories about Ray Robinson and Marcel Cerdan and the likes.

But, he was looking terribely old, struggling to talk, walk, and concentrate. He struggled to eat his dinner and was really slurring his words.

He had to leave early because he was too tired and repeated his "I fought Sugar Ray so many times, It's a wonder I don't have diabetes" a few times on accident. Was funny though, after he said it again, he was like "Have I said that joke already?"

I tried to ask him about Bert Lytell and Holman Williams but I couldn't really get any answers. Still, was amazing getting to meet him.

But yeah, he looked awful. In all honesty.

True, I guess I was looking at it all wrong. It is amazing to see he's never lost his fighting spirit.
