Most people don't understand, it wasn't just a lost for 2/5 of those guys. They each got brutally knocked out.
I remember a quote from George Foreman from a HBO broadcast of a Trinidad fight I watched recently where he said;
"A fighter can lose his prime in one fight."
then goes on to say how it happened to Fernando Vargas. It did. When you suffer a lost, like say a close decision lost. Most of the time the fighter will come back stronger depending on how good his mentality is. Then...when you get a brutal beat down like the one Vargas suffered, that just takes apart your whole mentality. You start getting constant flashbacks, and it's even worse for boxers because they're given the reminder almost each and every day when they look at those highlight videos and see themselves getting knocked out. Once a fighter breaks mentality, there career is over.
Until you've lost a fight, you'll never understand what it feels like afterwards. It's much worse for boxers.
