Default How come Giardello didnt get a shot at the title till he was 3 0 ?

Joey Giardello was rated in the top ten from 1952 to 1963,apart from 1955 when he was unranked,he got his first crack at a title ,a version of the crown owned by Gene Fullmer,Giardello received a draw ,on Fullmers home turf,in a fight in which both used their heads for more than thinking. Joey finally won the title from Dick Tiger in 1963,he was 33 years old,why did it take him so long to get a crack at the title?
