Re: Recovering from big knockout defeats
Taylor did recover after Chavez. He had the 2nd best victory of his career when he beat Aaron Davis for a WW title. It was only until he ran into Norris (in a weight class he shouldn't be fighting at) that his career came crashing down.
Speaking of Norris, he got brutally KO'd by Julian Jackson but ended up winning the 154 lb. title shortly after.
Wladimir Klitschko was TKO'd three times but he turned out pretty well.
Holyfield got TKO'd by Bowe yet upset Tyson.
