I was watching a video about fighters turning back the clock and it came to my attention that there always seemed to be the variable of different opponents. I think the opponents had more to do with “turning back the clock” than the fighter suddenly and magically getting younger.
I’ve spent about 10 minutes trying to think of a time a guy looked old, lost, and came back a few years later to beat the same younger guy that made them look old. Anyone have any examples?
The closest I can think is Ali vs Spinks I+II but Ali didn’t look any younger in the 2nd, he just fought a different way.
