Re: Haye\Vitali saga
Yes it would. You're saying when a boxer get to a certin age , a loss wont affect him. If Calzage came back today and lost, his legacy would be hampered. Thats why fighters stay retired, or retire early so not to pick up an unnecessary loss. If another defence of his title is a benefit to his legacy , a loss is will most certainly have a negative effect.
You must be the Klitt nuthugger overlord, wake up and smell the coffee.
Right now he'd be lucky to get HOF status. These accomplishments you speak of dont exist.
