Default A boxing trivia question

I was reading a boxing bio from the 1960's and in it stated that only 3 HW's have fought in all the weight divisions as professionals

Can you name them???!!??

Yeh as demps stated, Carpentier started off at flyweight as a teenager and grew all the way to heavy, I am sure there was a fighter that fought in the 20's and died before he peaked, whom had fought in every weight class and had about 200 odd fights, I'll go find out

Harry Greb was never a flyweight.

Battling Levinsky is my best guess lol. but he was never a flyweight either.
