    I hope it didn't take Murata much time to come to that conclusion. Anyone boxing at 40 and over is WELL PAST THEIR PRIME. You can have some "exceptions" in usually the heavyweight division since the majority are slow plodding punchers, but for I'd say anyone 195lbs and lighter, you're going to show your vulnerability and degrading in skill at 40yrs old and above.

      He was past his prime as far back as the Danny Jacobs fight. He's not a young man, he had a long amateur career, and he's put a lot of miles on his body.

      He's still got enough in the tank to KO Murata, though.

        He's been past his prime.


        Add in his amateur career also.



        He is still very technical and power is the last thing to go, and we all know GGG can crack.


        He better not be banking on that past prime stuff...

            mileage matters.

            when Floyd met Pac, he's older, but Pac been in many wars already.


            Murata is fresh. GGG had 350 amateur fights.
            Damn Wicked and PeepeePoopooMan like this.

              Mostly true. See Bhop.

                yes ggg has had a lot of fights over his career im surprised hes still going actually, what he has left will be interesting to find out, he certainly wont be improving from his last few outings tho i would say

                  also why Lomencheko seems to be in decline. dude also had like 300 amateur fights.


                  Kostya Tszyu for reference, retired at 36. dude had only 200 amateur fights and only 30 pro fights.

                    There seems to be a tradition of a lot of these eastern euro guys staying in the ams for a long time, whereas we as fans want to see them as pros, nobody cares about the ams lets be honest, its a different world to the pros, pitty pat point scoring stuff, lets be honest, i mean it suits different styles so its still an achievement to do well in it but a lot more people can do well in the ams than in the pros
