An 83-year-old retired foundry worker has been revealed as the world’s oldest WRESTLER who takes on men 50 YEARS younger than him. Grappling great-grandad Saleh Ghaleb has only lost one fight out of six since returning to the ring in 2011. The Yemeni-born pensioner, who is known as the ‘Amazing Kung Fu, made his debut in 1970 when the sport enjoyed heavy TV coverage. His career stalled for three years in 1984 when he returned to the Yemen to train the national Olympic judo team. Saleh, Yemen born, but a Birmingham resident since 1955, promises an awesome display of OAP power.
