That's a tough one... I would have to go back and research but I'm sure there has been some others.

Mike Tyson maybe?

i wouldnt say roy jones fell hard... i mean he had a succesful career.. has belts from middle to heavyweight... his body just couldnt take the weight loss going back down in weight and i believe that saaped what ever prime he had left... i can remember back in the 80's and 90's when 30 was considered old for a fighter... now these guys are fighting into their mid 40's... lol...

Roy didnt fall... He is beyond the twilight of his career. His prime was probably 1998. I think of THIS Roy as similar to the Joe Louis that fought Rocky Marciano. A shell of his former self. Tyson's great fall was during his prime years. Tyson's was much greater.

In order to fall you'd have to be up somewhere first.
