Another old man who simply can't walk away is one of Brigg's former opponents, South Africa's Frans Botha (48-11-3-1, 39).
Aged 45 Botha has already enjoyed a 24 year career. Interesting he fought Briggs, way back in 1999 and for those who want to put that into perspective it was before Manny Pacquiao had made his US debut and over a year before Floyd Mayweather beat Diego Corrales!
This Thursday sees Botha adding another stamp to his passport as he fights in the United Arab Emirates, his 7th country in as many fights!
At the moment Botha's opponent has yet to be named though we're not expecting anyone of any major interest unfortunately.
