A great video with some good moves and which would encourage even oldies like me to take up the sport and enjoy it whilst being careful of being paired against a fitter, younger, blood thirsty maniac whose sole satisfaction was to KO. It is what it is, sparring, and everybody has to begin somewhere regardless of age. What a sensible coach that Ozboxer is. He makes sparring a treat to watch.

I'm 55. Train 3x a week with a boxing club. An hour's sparring this morning. NOT too old!

If you read the sub-caption it specifies age 60: you still have 5 years to go before time and possible injury begin to catch up on you.

Dementia Pugilistica so common in boxers who are still boxing 10 years after announced retirement. Effects including Alzheimers Disease, increased risk of contre-coup concussion chronic and motor neurone disease similar to encephalopathy, Parkinsons and ALL completely irreversible. So light punching yet technically trained 60 year olds who agree not to go so hard are proven statistically not only to have longer brain lives but can still enjoy their sport even if it is with a titanium implant or from a wheelchair. The choice is yours

Or I could die of something else?

I agree, you could die of something a lot faster and a lot less burdensome and dignified.

I’m not worried about that. I know what I am doing and what I need to do. Yes, there’s a risk, but I have taken the necessary steps to see those risks are minimized.

I am glad that you have this self knowledge and control of the internal working of your body. I freely admit I dont without regular check ups and the british nhs being what it is, well... it could be a case of too little, too late. So I try and minimise my risks too and tone down my sparring a little for the sake of my opponent, his medical and complex legal reasons

I do see my doc at least twice a year (wellness checkup and follow up on my hypothyroidism). Plus, it does not hurt that I am a health care professional.

Flowplayer working again - for now.

Big height advantage there.
Can’t tell at times - how serious he is in sparring with Oz.

Know that it is just sparring - but if in clocked rounds - would love to see Oz take him out.

Is the guy in white on MF or just a guy who wants to mess around in gloves???

Looks good!
Oz is hot in the shorter trunks.

(Flowplayer - as is now usual - locks up on my iPad....).

There are several of us who do compete as a Masters amateur. Plus, I do like to spar or box with those younger than me. 60 is truly the next 40, if you really do the things necessary to accomplish it (diet, exercise, stress reduction).
