Some fighters recover better, some don't. This goes throughout the divisions.

Meldrick Taylor took a bad beating from J.C. Chavez, moved up in weight, had some success but wasn't what he had been. Fernando Vargas had even less success, post-Tito.

David Reid did nothing of note after fighting Tito. Davey Moore did little of note after fighting Roberto Duran. Duran hit his peak years after his first loss.

Lennox Lewis improved after his loss to Oliver McCall. Steward helped him with his balance issues and some technical flaws. You can see Lewis afterwards throw straight rights more often rather than those ugly winging right hands.

Sonny Liston had an early loss in his career.
