Default how much longer could have tunny held on to the title

Suppose he boxs until he losses what year and which fighter would dethrone him? Keep in mind he was 31 when he retire and his only beating was from greb.

I hope I don't get crucified for this!

I think that Tunney would have gone undefeated for at least another 4 years. But in 1932, the Jack Sharkey who beat Max Schmelling was no joke. Tunney might not have been quite what he was at 35! Back then 35 was seen as pretty ancient for a world class boxer.

Or, perhaps in 1933 the Max Baer than beat Max Schmelling might have simply been too damn powerful for a 36 year old Tunney.

Prime for prime though; Tunney beats everyone between Dempsey and Louis in my opinion.

I figure he *could go maybe a couple more, if he kept the right attitude. But he was no dumb pug who can't do anything else. His mental attitude, his wealth and his wife would pull him away from the Ring.
Hey, how many guys retire as Champ!?
