I dont believe any boxer hits their prime in their mid 30's, though with the assistance Walcott received ,their results might improve and have more consistancy .
Walcott had the skills and ability when he was 26 in 1940 scaling 192lbs, being stopped by Abe Simon,what he did not have was the motivation, financial cushion, regular food, and training.

After this fight he retired for 4 years, years when ,given the right support, he would have been in his prime.

Patterson in his prime at 20? Really , back then he weighed 166lbs.
How old was Patterson when he won title, that is age I meant. I thought it was 20 or 21.
