    It could be "Boxers who fought both brothers", and all three were heavyweight champions.

    But maybe the twins were actually one guy posing as twins. Just change up the trunks.

    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.

    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.
