Default Fighters who look like other fighters

I think probably the most famous example would be Jack Dempsey and Max Schmeling.
here are a couple others in my opinion

Mike Tyson and Cliff Couser

I also always thought that Pinklon Thomas looked a lot like Ken Norton.


Alex Stewart imo looked like a heavyweight Matthew Saad Muhammad.


Any others?

Ray Beltran (boxer) looks like a smaller version of Joey Beltran (UFC fighter) - ironically with the same last name, though i'm fairly certain they are not related.

To add to the confusion, I read that Joey Beltran (UFC) is looking to make his pro boxing debut.......in a fight AGAINST RAY BELTRAN!!!! okay I made that last part up, the weight difference is likely huge, but he is indeed looking to go pro as a boxer.

Jack Dempsey and Max Schmeling could pass for cousins.

Joe Louis - Coley Wallace is a famous one.

Although no great facial resemblance per se, I always felt that with their similar physiques, the 'tache and slightly receding hairline on either side of the head that Bill Costello was a "min-me" of Ken Norton.

Scale down Victor Galindez to Fly/bantam and you have Santos Laciar.

I always thought that Tim Witherspoon looked a little like Sonny Liston, Sonny had a darker complexion though.
