McCall and Chuvalo have better claims to the title than Cobb, in my opinion.
It's possible that Tex just stayed around after that chin lost it's magical powers. He just hung around too lon. The same might have happened to Chuvalo if he didn't quit when he did. Jake LaMotta finally got put on the deck by Danny Nardico, and that was because he syated after the expiration date on his chin went out. I don't know about McCall, but I'm sure that the law of averages will take it's toll on him too if he stays active too long.
