Vitali did brilliantly after his come back.
I actually think he peaked after he came back and it wasn't for the short period of time - either in retirement either after he came back...
It might be slightly easier for HW - they don't rely that much on speed which you loose first.
But also it is up to the fighter. Vitali looked almost in the same shape during his retirement. I don't like the fighters who put on so much weight instantaneously after they retire.
There is only a few fighters who will be in the good shape after retirement - those are real sportsmen.
