Lester Ellis after a 6 and a half year booze and drug filled retirement

Alvarez was a 3rd tier trinket never awarded before or since

He lost to Kessler, Ottke and Siaca.

Not sure do you count alphabet champions and if so where do you draw the line, WBF? Also does it count if they fought as amateurs?
Not sure about Australian boxers but De la Hoya fought 23 World Champions.
It would probably have to be Fenech in the modern era and you could probably add to his list if you include amateur fights.
