As first reported by MiddleEasy, it appears that the Colorado State Boxing Commission sanctioned a Mixed Martial Arts bout between a 68 year old and a 24 year old.
The bout, which was by no means competitive, can be viewed at the following link.
Colorado’s rules require that “disparity in age” be taken into account when reviewing a potential bout. Specifically Rule 3.2 reads as follows
If 68 vs 24 is not a bout cancelling ‘disparity in age’ it is difficult to imagine what is.
I have reached out to the Colorado State Boxing Commission for comments on the considerations taken into account when approving this bout and will update this post if/when they reply.
