Throwback: 60-year-old takes on a young pro in a sparring session. You can see that the youngster isn’t taking things too seriously beforehand, laughing towards the camera like it is some sort of joke.
The veteran doesn’t see the funny side, though, even though he wears a goddamn old-man-sweater for the duration of the contest. The young pro dances about the place, skipping around the outskirts of the ring before attempting a jab that the veteran easily bobs out of the way of before closing the distance and throwing a couple of solid hooks.
It’s not clear if the guys were making fun of the veteran beforehand but by the way, he was boxing, he certainly had a point to prove.
What do you guys reckon? Did the old timer go a bit hard for a training session or did it serve the young guy right for laughing beforehand and not taking his opponent seriously?
