Demarcus Corley held the WBO light welterweight title for two years beginning in 2001, but a split-decision loss to Zab Judah in a title fight put him on a nine-year skid that included 18 defeats in his next 27 fights.

Remarkably, the 37-year-old Corley has bounced back in 2012 with back-to-back wins over Gabriel Bracero (18-0) and Paul McCloskey (23-1), and suddenly is being mentioned as an opponent for the likes of Amir Khan.
