Both fighters biggest accomplishments were fights where the where almost good enough to beat the champion but came up short and lost. Which fighter had the biggest rise in fame after a loss? Im going to say Gus. Though I believe most of his new "fans" will jump ship If he gets finished by Jones in the rematch. I think most only love Gus because they hope he can beat Jones and when they find out it is not going to happen they will jump on the DC "fan" train. I personally became a Gus fan after the Jones fight because I had no Idea he was that good.
