Barrera's another one.
Foreman's was interesting. When he came back from retirement he was a completely different fighter. He was more relaxed and some learned how to be more conservative with his energy and punches. It was like he realized his shortcomings and made the best of his strengths.

I realize ИATAS206 wasn't refering to fighters adjusting because of age but I was thinking about Foremans changes in style last night and had to touch on it.
