Default Greatest Rebound from a series of losses?

Besides Jim J Braddock and Margarito....are there other prospects that after a string of losses came back and won a title and successfully defended it.

Iran Barkley. Suffered three defeats in a row to Duran, Nunn, and Benn. Two years later, in less than three months time, he wins the IBF Super Middleweight title and the WBA Light Heavyweight title, earning Comback of the Year honors for 1992.

Ellis is a great example.

Danny "Little Red" Lopez lost a bunch of fights one year and was thought to be finished as a prospect, then went on to become a long reigning champion a couple years later.

Lee Oma lost a lot of fights early in his career, then went on to become a leading HW contender.

Max Baer had a heap of losses before going on a run to win the world title.

Billy Backus lost three fights in eight months, then three more over the next five years before winning the welterweight title from Jose Napoles.

Had about Schmeling?

Had his fair share of losses prior to scoring one of the greatest wins of all time.

Johnny Nelson is regarded as a bit of a joke by some but he was damn effective and seems a thoroughly nice bloke as well.

Apparantly his autobiography is a brilliant and hilarious read, will have to check it out
