Good reversal, gdave. Thorpe's total career was actually remarkably long.

I'll nominate Salvador Sanchez. He died at age 23(!), but is still considered one of the elite featherweight boxers of all time. The Associated Press ranked him as the third-greatest featherweight of the twentieth century, and The Ring ranked him the 22nd-greatest pound-for-pound boxer of the magazine's tenure (then 1922-2002). He had 46 fights, but there was only a 2.5-year span between his first world title fight and his last.
