K9 Bundrage Becomes Oldest Champ at 154 - in History

By Anson Wainwright

Over the weekend, Cornelius Bundrage became the oldest man to ever win a world title at junior middleweight when he outpointed Carlos Molina to regain the IBF title.

Bundrage started fast by dropping Molina in the opener and again in the 10th frame to cap a fine performance, winning 117-110, 117-109 and 117-106. The victory saw the Detroit-born native easily break Verno Phillips previous record.
 
Here is a list of the 10 oldest fighters to win versions of the junior middleweight title.

Oct. 11, 2014 - Cornelius Bundrage 41 years, 6 months - Won a unanimous decision to unseat his opponent who was 10-years his junior.

Mar. 27, 2008 - Verno Phillips 38 years, 4 months - Phillips won an unlikely split decision in Cory Spinks' hometown of St Louis, MS.

Sept. 13, 2008 - Vernon Forrest 37 years, 8 months - Regained his WBC strap winning a unanimous decision over Sergio Mora having lost the same title to the former contender winner 3-months prior.

Aug. 7, 2010 - Cornelius Bundrage 37 years, 4months - Stopped Cory Spinks in five rounds to win his first world title.

Sept. 14, 2013 - Floyd Mayweather Jr. 36 years, 7 months - Won a majority decision (should have been unanimous) to regain the WBC crown in the highest grossing Pay-Per-View in history against Canelo Alvarez.

July 28, 2007 - Vernon Forrest 36 years, 6 months - Easily won a unanimous decision over Carlos Baldomir in Washington State.

Nov. 12, 1994 - Luis Santana 35 years, 11 months - A week shy of his 36th birthday Santana theatrically won the WBC title against Terry Norris when Norris was disqualified. Inexplicably 3-months later Norris was again disqualified before finally regaining the title in the rubber match.

Jan. 6, 2006 - Travis Simms 35 years, 8 months - The Connecticut-born fighter beat up and stopped Jose Rivera in nine rounds for the WBA strap.

May 5, 2012 - Floyd Mayweather Jr. 35 years, 3 months - Mayweather beat Miguel Cotto for the WBA belt in 2012, in one of the most competitive fights of his career.

Feb. 23, 2012 - Ishe Smith - 34 months, 7 months - Smith won a majority decision over Bundrage to claim the IBF championship.

He would be a good match up for Canelo For a title, against an aggressive guy with heart and some pop....I'd rather see this fight first then he can fight Cotto
