Or Salido, who took JuanMa's "zero" while having eleven losses and two draws on his own record. Some of these guys, including the ones you mentioned, are dangerous fighters that are written off by some because of the blemishes on their records. It's one of the benefits of being a serious fan; your understanding of the sport deepens.

I don't know why boxing is like this. Only one team in the history of the NFL has finished with an undefeated season. No NBA, MLB or NHL teams have ever finished a season undefeated. Even somebody like Tiger Woods doesn't win every single tournament he's in.

But in boxing, once you lose, your considered damaged goods/leftovers/shot/washed up, etc. No other professional sports have this mindset.

If it were only so easy. There have been few fighters in the sport that fought a good number of serious opponents and still retained their undefeated record. Muhammad Ali was undefeated after 31 contests, even after facing Sonny Liston (twice) and Floyd Patterson, among others. Ali took his first loss against Joe Frazier, another ATG heavyweight. This was less than six months after coming off a three-and-a-half year ban. Two more good examples would be Julio Cesar Chavez, Sr. and Ray Robinson. It's controversial to say around here, but I believe you can add Floyd Mayweather, Jr. to that list, too.

I honestly believe it's because the majority of fighters rely on their fanbase to secure fights. The more popular you are, the more money you bring in, the more other fighters want to fight you for money.

As soon as you lose, you lose your momentum. It's usually 3-6 months between fights, where your fans lose interest and find other fighters to follow. Without that fan base to bring in money - you're strapped to find yourself a meaning fight. Hence - the rut that Khan and other fighters find themselves in after a loss.
