How-Old.net vs Premier Boxing Champions

Because you weren't insecure enough with your selfies, here comes Microsoft's new How-Old.net. And sure, there's a certain amount of satisfaction in finding out your high school nemesis looks 10 years older than they should, but we wanted to put it to the test and see how the sweet science treats its practitioners by running a slew of Premier Boxing Champions fighters through the software.

How-old.net

You have to admit, this software is a huge blow for "Guess your age/weight" carnies.

The answer in some cases is "pretty good," but on the whole, well, let's just say that most fighters are going to be happier with what it says on the tale of the tape rather than what facial recognition software has to say. If you want to try it for yourself (as if you haven't already), the site is blowing up the internet at How-Old.net.

Omar Figueroa Jr.

Omar Figueroa Jr.

Fresh-faced Omar Figueroa Jr. shows up at 27, which isn't too far off from his real age of 25. Not bad.

Errol Spence Jr.

Errol Spence Jr.

Another young fighter, Errol Spence Jr., is listed at 28. Like Figueroa, he's actually 25. Still, not too far off. No program is perfect right off the bat, right?

Amir Khan

Amir Khan

Amir Khan is 28, but How-Old puts him at 31. Still not bad, but we kind of feel bad for the gentleman behind him who doesn't look anywhere near 80. Bad form, How-Old.

Danny Garcia

Danny Garcia

Danny Garcia is 27. Early thirties is a little bit of a stretch here. But you know what? It's still a new program and Microsoft admits they're fine-tuning it. Benefit of the doubt and all that.

Abner Mares

Abner Mares

Abner Mares is 29 years old, but registers as 35. Again, not really close, but apparently, on the plus side, Mares can look forward to qualifying for senior discounts long before he should realistically be eligible. Way to game the system, pal.

Keith Thurman

Keith Thurman

Wait, for real? Keith Thurman at 27 when he's younger than Khan? He's only a year older than Figueroa and Spence, for crying out loud.

Deontay Wilder

Deontay Wilder

Now you're just messing with us. Deontay Wilder is 29. 

Chris Arreola

Chris Arreola

Oh, not cool How-Old. Not cool at all. You're lucky 34-year-old Chris Arreola doesn't come back there and punch you in the algorithms.
