Jake la motta was on the slide when he finally got the belt. Also alot of old boxing writers say jack johnson was also past his peak when he becme champion. Archie moore was 39 and had been frozen out the title picture for 10 years when he become champion. Hary greb was fighting with one eye, and had 4 or 5 grueling fights with toney by the time he become champion. Any more?
