    A bit different from your premise. Katsuaki Eguchi fought his own brother for the Japanese Minimumweight title. Brutal KO.

    Ugh I wonder how their parents reacted to this fight. Can't imagine how the family reunion was like.

    Actually they were 2 years apart from each other. Apparently they come from a family consisting of 10 brothers and 4 sisters.

    From the 1700's, George Millsom fought both George Meggs and his brother. There were actually three brothers, George, Parsit and another who's name I don't know.

    14 kids? Must have all had different mothers or some were adopted. The two of them didn’t even look alike. One was probably a stepchild or illegitimate b*****d.
