Default Trivia: Brothers with the most fights.

Which group of brothers engaged in more (total) pro bouts, than any other group of brothers?

I'll say the Zivic brothers. About 4 of them fighting in an era where a fighter actually fought and many times.

Reggie and Jerry Strickland are only 9 fights behind Zivic brothers.

Reggie Strickland... 363
Jerry Strickland..... 136
Total................... 499

Fritzie Zivic... 233
Eddie............ 85
Pete............ 108
Jack.............. 82
Total............ 508

Now you would think, 508 is enough to "win" this category... but there's actually a group of brothers, who beats this by almost 100 fights!

Doug, my man... you got it!

Dave and his 5 brothers had 606 pro fights between them - which, I believe, is the most by any group of brothers:

Dave.... 110
Alfie..... 147
Clem.... 101
George. 101
Ritchie... 89
Russel... 58
Total....606

If only Wickwar had a couple of Brothers who were pros...

A set of brothers from that era in British boxing is possibly a way that the record can be taken from the Brothers Sands.

Yeah, I was actually thinking about that. One brother with 150 or so fights would have been enough to top the Sands!
