Still to be seen of course, since both are still active (I think). But they looked to have slipped quite a bit after those defeats.

Davey Moore after Duran (he beat Benitez via ankle injury, but never came good on his early promise).
Thats a good shout about Davey Moore.

Cheers

A couple of more recent ones:

Jose Antonio Aguirre, a dominant Straweight champ, was never quite the same after defeat to Eagle.

Same with Nelson Dieppa (up a division) after his loss to Cazares.

One I was surprised with was Darchinyan, he was every part the bully when he got KO'd by Donaire then he struggled for a while, then hit some amazing form and was for a period one of the best in the world before getting a bit too ****y.

Mickael second to Nunn ran into a undefeated lights out in a big homecoming (does that happen anymore?) damn i still have nightmeres of that fight (I really liked Nunn) Mickael was dominating, started playing to the crowd even rubbing his gloves on Toney's face at one point, then suddenly got countered with that picture perfect left hook and he was never really the same after that.

Tito Trinidad.

Looked like an unbeatable monster coming into the Hopkins (David Reid, Fernando Vargas, Mamdou Thiam and William Joppy all but destroyed). Hopkins ended up giving him a brutal beatdown.

Never reached the same heights again (nice fight with Mayorga though).


In the same vein, David Reid (very promising up and comer) and Fernando Vargas (very promising up and comer) never quite the same (the Reid case is a bit different of course) after Trinidad brutalised them.

Look at the Sanchez fight, that was a sign of Naz declining in terms of "showing up" ...my two pence.


Camacho after the Rosario fight..

Vargas after the Tito Fight..
