    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.

    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.

    David Bey never became a champion. But he beat Buster Douglas and Greg Page who later did.
