Default Besides Hagler/Lennox Lewis/Calzaghe/Marciano, who else retired at the perfect time?

Who else retired at the perfect time?

Marciano- Retired at 32, 49-0, beat ATG fighters, retired at a great time

Lennox Lewis- Just beat Vitali Klitschko/Mike Tyson, beat ATG fighters, retired at the top of hw boxing. Lineal champ.

Calzaghe- Went to 175, beat Hopkins/Jones. A decade+ of SMW defenses, retired at the top

Hagler- Although losing to Ray Leonard, did not feel the drive anymore, felt robbed. Left without any injuries at all, great money

Benny Leonard before his comeback. I think Flex Trinidad before he came back too.

Marciano, Calzaghe and Lennox did not beat any ATG fighters, at best they beat way past it fighters who once were ATG ten years before.

Lewis/Hagler/Marciano/Calzaghe/Gene/Monzon/Michael Spinks (Kinda)/Joe Louis before comeback were all very good cases of fighters retiring at the PERFECT time. It's great.
