became one themself. Who are they?
That's a very strange question... there must be hundreds and hundreds of boxers, who fit this description!
SAM LANGFORD IS KING HERE TREMBLE YOU COWARDS!!!
Andy Price had wins over Pipino Cuevas and Carlos Palomino before they were champs.
Willie “The Worm” Monroe and Bobby “Boogaloo” Watts both beat pre-champ Marvin Hagler.
Leo Houck beat 6 future world champions:
Tommy Morrison beating Big George Foreman immediately sprung to my mind. (I don't consider WBX or IBX or WTF belt holders as Champions).
Kenny Lane - beat Carlos Ortiz, Carlos Hernandez and Ralph Dupas
Alfredo Urbina - beat Jose Napoles, Eddie Perkins and Chango Carmona
It's not easy when you draw the line at 3 like I did. It gets easier if you go less.
Renaldo Snipes....he beat Trevor Berbick and Gerry Coetzee
David Bey never became a champion. But he beat Buster Douglas and Greg Page who later did.
Elmer Ray: Ezzard Charles/Jersey Joe Walcott
Lloyd Marshall: Ken Overlin/Ezzard Charles/Jake LaMotta/Joey Maxim/Freddie Mills
Davey Abad: Tony Canzoneri/Henry Armstrong
Kid Tunero - Ezzard Charles, Ken Overlin, Marcel Thil and Anton Christoforidis
Spider Webb - Dick Tiger, Joey Giardello and Terry Downes
