Default Worst decline in a fighter you've seen?

I'm watching jones vs Johnson right now and it got me thinking about the decline in fighters.

Jones just lost his flashy speed and reflexes and although we see shadows of it today it's still not the same.

Toney has power and that's all he has going for him, he has no reflexes left.

Mosley still kind of kept his power even as he declined but he didn't have the speed he once had.

Wilfred Benitez is probably the saddest example I can think of, by his mid 20s he had slowed down significantly and in the end took too much punishment.

Tyson's decline was more mental than physical.


Any other notable fighters?

The fastest and worse decline I have ever seen was Prince Hamed after he lost to MAB.

I have never seen anything like that before, he lost everything he had overnight

Kelly Pavlik after the Hopkins fight. Hopkins' foes usually end up like that somehow..
Ricky Hatton after losing to Mayweather
Donaire has declined after losing to Rigo
Sergio Martinez after the JCC Jr fight?
