In March 2013, after a 7.5-year hiatus from professional boxing, Fitz came back to win the National Boxing Authority championship defeating an opponent 17 years younger, achieving his 6th professional national title. The victory made Fitz the oldest Canadian Champion in history - succeeding George Chuvalo - and a three-division boxing champion at 45 years of age.Vanderpool came out of retirement and won a six-round decision over Phil Rose on Sept 15, 2012, in Ontario, Canada. In a second comeback bout at 45 years of age, Vanderpool won a ten round unanimous decision over Roberto McClellan on March 2, 2013, to win the vacant Canada National Boxing Authority NBA Middleweight title in New Brunswick, Canada, making him the oldest ever Canadian national boxing champion.
