Was Tito's dad a fighter?
Yes, Felix Trinidad Sr. was a fighter of note. most known for losing to Salvador Sanchez.

dont think he turned pro. I think there are countless fighters whose fathers boxed, but never turned pro.

Lennie Mancini was an very good fighter, but probably just shot of Championship class, Ray for brief periods clearly was Championship class.

This might be a controversial pick, but I'll have to say Sir Bert Cooper was at least a little better than his father Sir Henry Cooper. I think the Orlin Norris win might be the best Heavyweight victory of the 90s; considering Tyson's shameless ducking of both men should have been for the real Heavyweight Title. The past prime Joe Savage destruction puts him over the top.

plenty of great fighters had fathers who boxed some..i mean when the father actually won a title..and the son ended up being even greater...

it seems to be a very rare thing.

Well Cory won the Junior Middleweight title!

Junior was meant in the same context, the fight was set at 167, Billy was the first Super Middleweight Champ of the World.

Wilfredo Vasquez Jr??...I'm asking since I haven't seen much of Snr to have an informed opinion on whether Jr is better or not.

Tracy was adopted. No bloodline there. His last name was Harris, later extended to Harris Patterson.

Guty Espadas Sr and Jr

Think Cory Spinks is the best answer so far
