Emile Griffth, from memory, has 10+ (not including defences when he was champion) I think.

Abe Attell has around the same. Hilario Zapata has a 5 or 6.

Victor Polo had 5! Manuel Medina and Glen Johnson got plenty of title opportunities as well in the end.

Evan Fields had 7. 8 if you count CW, so I guess it's 8

What a joke these Alphabet belts are.

Glen Johnson had 8

Firat Arslan is 2-3 in last 5 fights. All 3 losses were title shots.

Miguel Cotto has had 5 title shots. Won all of them.

Floyd has "challenged" for a belt 8 times. If you count the Maidana and Alvarez unificationís then that makes 10.

Pacquiao has had 8 and if you count his ball-buster unification with Sanchez then that makes 9.

Paulie Malignaggi managed to get 5 shots.

Zab Judah had 8. I am not including unifications. I got kinda cunfused with those.
