Default The longest break between two fights between two fighters?

I've just been curious, what is the longest break between two meetings between two guys?
One I can think of is 16 years, 3 months and 23 days between 2-nd Fenech - Nelson fight and their third meeting in 2008. Was there maybe even longer break between match and rematch in the history? I'm waiting for some informations from you historicans here!
Also as you're already here, does title name makes any sense?

hopkins and jones

'93 - 2010

duran - leonard

'80 - '89

pretty sure [Ted "kid"] lewis and britton fought a gazillion times over six or seven years
would check the boxrec but they're telling me their servers are overloaded. sounds bogus to me.

Yeah, Roy and Hopkins had one long break indeed, somehow it didn't seem so long to me.
And as for boxrec, you just need to register.

Well I can't think of longer ones but Holmes also fought Bonecrusher Smith in 1984 and then rematched him in 1999.

I think Tim Witherspoon and Greg Page fought again in the late 90s, and Virgil Hill and Maske rematch when they were both past it.

Holmes and Weaver is arguably the longest, 21 years after.
