Default King of rematches...

Sugar Ray Robinson and Joe Louis come to mind. Guys just tore people down the second time around.

Ali comes to mind as well, though he didn't beat everyone the 2nd and 3rd time around as convincingly as SSR and Joe did.

Yeah after Robinson, Nelson was as good as anyone IMO.

Bobby Chacon sticks in my mind. Schoolboy was kayoed twice by Olivares, before scoring a decision win, lost his next match to tough Arturo Leon, and won their eventual rematch five years later, lost the first match to Bazooka Limon, settled for a technical draw in their second, then swept the last two in that series. Finally, after getting stopped by Boza Edwards in an intitial meeting, Bobby won the rematch.

Chacon's career was rather bizarre in that respect. Olivares stopped him twice, blowing Bobby out in two the second time around, and should have had a virtually insurmountable psychological advantage over Schoolboy going into a third go around. Yet for Chacon, the third time was the charm, and he comfortably outpointed Reuben.

It looked like Bobby's career was over, after his late round loss in a match which Boza Edwards had very comfortably on two of the scorecards. But in their rematch, Chacon turned the tables.

To further compound matters, Bobby was generally smaller and older than the opponents he won these rematches against, with only the great Olivares being significantly older than Bobby. (Even then, Reuben had only just turned 30 at the time of their final bout.)

Ali against Frazier, Norton, and Spinks. Although only one of these rematches was for the title.

Huh? Ali's final matches against all three were title fights. (I assume you meant for regaining the championship against Spinks.)

Marvin Hagler was far far better in rematches, which also underlines (IMO) his one weakness for mine.

If your talking rubber matches, then your correct as well. But the thread title is "king of rematches". Ali beat Norton in their rematch in 1973, and the Frazier win was 1974. These were non-title fights.

Out of all the rematches I mentioned, only one was a title fight, Spinks.

Rematches, not rubber matches.
