    The last round of the Daiki fight was ridiculous.

    Daiki spent half of it thinking it was an MMA fight and throwing Naito to the ground.

    Surely there must have been at least 1 or 2 fighters that fought a couple of the Zivic Brother and the same for Down Under against the Sands Brothers

    I wonder- Did anyone ever fight both Galaxy’s? I’m pretty sure Harada had a brother that Eder beat. Maybe I’m imagining things.

    I feel like you could play this game all day long with the Zivic brothers.

    Jack Johnson fought both Charles “Jack” Jeffries and James J Jeffries.

    Joe Frazier beat both of the “Soul Brothers” - Muhammad Ali and Bob Foster.

    I guess the Gibbons bros, Tommy and Mike could’ve shared an opponent in all possibility?

    Tony Canzoneri and Bat Battalino both fought both Billy and Frankie Petrolle. Lou Manfra on his Heavyweight Collectibles website has a photo of Canzoneri squaring off with Frankie Petrolle, though Lou lists him as Billy Petrolle. Maybe someone else can tell Lou to change it. I emailed him years ago with no luck!

    Canelo actually beat Cotto and his brother too.

    Before he stepped up his competition, the joke used to be defending his resume by saying he’d beaten Hatton and Cotto (without mentioning the first names).

    The Sullivan twins , Mike@Jack were both KO'd by Ketchell, the younger brother Mike in the 1st, then Jack in the 20th, rather foolishly Jack had shouted at Stan ( after Mike was unconscious ) " things will be different when you fight me " well they certainly were !
    stay safe guys.

    Bob Allotey fought brothers Jose and Dionisio Bisbal. Jose by the way is the father of Spanish international singing star David Bisbal.
