I guess I could look this shit up but me thinks this is the case and I wanna know why?

Some of my 3 min theories are;

a) Promoters bleeding the big names for longer.
b) Fighters running up bigger debts and getting greedy
c) Sports/Medical science IE recovery, nutrition etc allowing guys to compete well into their 40's


Evander for example held the WBA at age 49, we've seen Randy and Fedor et al compete way past their early 30's (when fighters would traditionally stop)

What gives?
