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 regional boxing champion. George Chuvalo was 43 years old when he retained the Canadian Heavyweight title over George Jerome in Toronto in December 1978. The NBA Middleweight title is a new Canadian belt. There is a separate Canadian Middleweight title which has been vacant for three years, which will be fought for by Michael Walchuk and Albert Onolunose in Alberta, Canada, on May 25, 2013. Vanderpool could be a candidate to fight the winner of that bout by virtue of his recent regional title win.
