Family members and friends have tried to persuade him to enjoy life and take it easy, as most people his age do. But Chen ignores their advice, because he is a professional boxer.He began learning martial arts at the age of 10. Later, a well-known boxer, Gao Guangda, taught Chen how to fight in the ring. He fought many professional bouts, and today Chen stays in shape by exercising four hours a day.He coaches at a fight club in Changchun, Jilin province. As he passes on his skills to others, he is also training himself, because he still fights professionally.”Age is no hurdle for me,” he says, adding that one well-known boxer fought until he was 71.”I can fight for another five years, my body permitting.”Chen has stepped up his training recently because next year he plans to participate in Wushu Masters, a televised martial-arts competition produced by CCTV.Previous Page1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Next Page8.03KRelated ArticlesConfucius Museum to open next year in E ChinaConfucius institute in Botswana starts 5th anniversary celebrationsJiangsu plans more Confucius ClassesChina marks 2,565 anniversary of Confucius birthTagsconfucius boxerPhotoAge is no hurdleChinese celebrities international marriagesActress Ni Ni on fireBillionaires Christmas giftsWinter Nadam kicks off in North ChinaTraditions of the legendary St. RegisArtFilmCelebrityFashionFoodTravelFrench artist creates her photographic worldAPEC items and gifts shine at ICCIEIndian cultural relics on show in HubeiPeking Opera troupe marks 60th anniversary with first-class shows2014 Biennial of Chinese Traditional Painting opensAncient Chinese porcelain’s European connectionStudents paint dream on manhole coversAuction with a Chinese heartIntroducing the art songSelling salzburgTop national art show presents winning worksEclectic artist brings exhibit to Chinese mainlandGone With the Bullets fires backMovie Dad, where are we going? season 2 shoots in FijiNew movie recreates Chinese-French romance parted by warXu Angs debut a triumph in RomeLove stories prove eternal at the box officeUS TV serials to be under reviewCritics target Gone With the BulletsA filmmakers real-life dramaChina film box office may miss 2014 targetTaiwan novelists plagiarism case to go on public trialTsui Hark revives Chinas red classicWanda opens first movie theme park in WuhanXu Jinglei poses for fashion magazineYearender: Chinese actresses who married in 2014Chinese celebrities international marriagesJackie Chan says he did not use connections to help sonActress Ni Ni on fireHostess Wang Jing detained over drug-related offencesAdam Sandler heads Forbes list of overpaid actors for second yearTaiwan novelists plagiarism case to go on public trialJJ Lins wax figure unveiled at Madame TussaudsChinese pop icon Jay Chou confirms wedding dateJaycee Chan formally charged over drug offenseVoice singer Li Daimo released from jailXinjiang silk seeks a broader fashion stagePictures of the year: FashionFashion updateLuxury brand news built to lastTop 8 trends of 2014 fashion showSeasonal styleMost beautiful dresses by Gucci PremièreThe First Ladys wardrobe in 2014Beauty, from hand-to-mouthStrike a pose for modelling schoolFlower song of minimalism and simplicityFashion updateFeast for the pocketbookTraditions, traditions…The articulate steak & withdrawn chefGingerbread fansHow much it costs you at hotelsWestern food, Shanghai styleDining in seasonal styleTea contest held in Chinas XiamenModern food van with ancient look in ShanghaiA bigger slice of the actionSt. Regis Tianjin receives awards for food, drinksSimple coffee bean could be vital solution to improving health in Laos countrysideTop 10 most beautiful terraces in ChinaMountain paradiseGlimpses of Lhasas holiday seasonTop 10 destinations for female travelersTop 10 seldom-seen views around the worldQuanzhou charmsYunnan, a travel heavenCity of SpringsMorning sun showers snow-covered Great WallMixing old with new in central Vietnam2013 Top 10 Tourism DestinationsEditors PicksBillionaires Christmas giftsChristmas: China and the WestAll wrapped up in ChristmasYearender: Major events in showbiz in 2014Hot wordsRobin WilliamsHan HanGossipTiny TimesOscars red carpet ReganmianNanluoguxiangTeaShirley TempleLeonardo DiCaprioVideoSupermodel Liu Wen becomes face of ChinaLaowai Not: Fashion geekVideo: Street snap in BeijingColumnsRaymond Zhou:X-RayPauline D Loh:
