And I thought Ancient Archie Moore put all that crap to rest in the 50's.

At the age of 42 (though some say he was older), he fought Marciano to the wire. When his cornermen wanted him to end the fight on his stool, Moore said "I am a champion, too. I will go down fighting."

It was really the swan song of his career, he was only in the game eight more years.
