Arturo Hernandez fought Gabe Ruelas (L-TKO 3) and Rafael Ruelas (L-TKO 1), about two months apart.
The Hogue twins, Shorty and Big Boy, shared an amazing 15 opponents:
Johnny "Bandit" Romero
Charley Burley also was an opponent of both Big Boy and Shorty Hogue.
- Chuck Johnston
Harry Greb fought the following groups of brothers:
George and Joe Chip
Mike and Tommy Gibbons
- Chuck Johnston
Arturo Godoy beat both Vittorio Campolo and his younger brother Valentin Campolo.
It could be "Boxers who fought both brothers", and all three were heavyweight champions.
Thanks, he certainly was! Somehow I overlooked him - but will now add him to the list of the other 14.
But maybe the twins were actually one guy posing as twins. Just change up the trunks.
Sam Peter fought both Klitschko brothers.
Never were they seen in the same room together at the same time...And nobody had a light bulb moment about this? Sheesh, some people are soooo dumb!
They say twins are "psychotically" connected. I wonder if one feels the punches when the other one gets hit. Hey, if Ali's kinfolk could get shook so many times, anything is possible.
That's amazing. Great info. Thanks, and thanks to @Chuck1052 for the addition of Charlie Burley.
Sugar Ray Robinson fought and lost to brothers Denny and Phil Moyer in 1962.
SRR did beat Denny in their first meeting but was 1-2 against the brothers.
Canelo fought both Cottos; hell, Jose Miguel is the only time I've ever seen Canelo hurt.
Oh, and he fought the Smiths.
In addition to Joe Louis, Tony Galento fought Max and Buddy Baer.
Corrie Sanders fought both Klitschkos.
Benji Singleton fought the Simms brothers.
