It's hardly a massive issue but it seems an unnecessary irritation which I could do without.

I don't think it makes any difference. Even using the forum it remembers me for a bit and then it forgets and I have to log-on again. It occurred to me that it might happen when I switch between devices but it doesn't seem to be that either.

Sounds like the issue is at my end then. I had considered that a possibility. Thanks Oog.

At the bottom right of this page you'll see "jump to".

Choose "record database" and then "ratings". You can then change "world" to "Australia" or "New Zealand" and change the other options as you wish.

You cannot combine them i.e. there is no "Australasia" option.

The forum software is getting on for 20 years old and flaky as F. It is a real pain to keep it maintained, there will come a point when it will have to go. These days most people are using Twitter, Discourse etc etc

:o

What would be the plan for the forums when it goes John? I know other sites use XenForo to host their forums, they seem pretty good, not that I know a lot about these things. It's handy that you can like/dislike posts and easily upload photos but I guess you would need to rely on advertising to a certain extent.

Boxrec should resume posting the fighters' ages and birthdates. I can't understand why Boxrec stopped doing so.

Are the editors afraid of ageism? If so, that would be absurd, because boxers are athletes, and not office workers. Ageism is factor making workplace hiring decisions. But ageism is not a factor that affects peoples' capacity to assess an athlete's situation as a competitor.

Let's face it: if fans want to analyze a boxer's capacity to win a major fight, then they need to know if the fighter is 25 or 45 years old. Biological aging is a massive determinant of an athlete's competitiveness, or lack thereof. Knowing a fighter's age is every bit as important as knowing his win-lose-draw numbers.

Editors: can you please explain what's going on here?

You can find Tyson Fury's age here:

You would need his exact date of birth to get the exact determinant of an athlete's competitiveness? Ah, you would like to lay his horoscope :TU:

I didn't say anything like that. But I am arguing that we should know if a fighter is, for example, 25, 35, or 45. Being any of those different ages says something important about an athlete's physical competitiveness. Just like it's important to know their height, reach, and weight. I don't think any reasonable person would deny would I'm asserting here.

Biological age is almost always a factor in determining how a boxer compares to his peers. There's just no getting around that. It's silly that a comprehensive boxing database would include all relevant info about a fighter except his age.

Only in some cases does Boxrec show the age. In most cases, data concerning age or DOB is missing. That forces fans to do Google searches in order to find the desired info.

Boxrec always shows the age in the boxer profile, if the date of birth is known.
