Ranking the Most Unbreakable Records in Boxing (Part 4)

The Most Bouts and Wins in a Career: Len Wickwar

This record is quite hard to determine with precise accuracy. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, boxing was banned outright in some areas as an outlaw sport and had to be presented as “an exhibition” in some others.
So determining the complete records for boxers is not completely possible.

But by combing through newspaper archives with the most accurate database possible, it shows that lightweight Len Wickwar had the most verified professional fights and the most wins in a career.

Between 1928 and 1947, Wickwar compiled a record total of 467 fights which is the records that almost impossible be touched.

The Most Knockouts in a Career: Archie Moore
This is another record that is well out of the scope of contemporary prize possible for fighters. In a career that lasted three decades, “The Old Mongoose” Archie Moore was considered as a top-rated fighter from middleweight to heavyweight and won 183 professional fights, 131/ 183 by stoppage.
Moore was a crafty veteran who grew his power with him as he went up in weight categories. He is arguably considered as the greatest light heavyweight to ever live and has been held the title for the last decade of his career, while ranking at the top of the heavyweight division in his spare time.

Moore is also the only fighter to have competed against both Muhammad Ali and Rocky Marciano.

The Most Titles Held Concurrently in Different Weight Classes: Henry Armstrong
Besides Sugar Ray Robinson, Henry Armstrong is only one truly valid alternative: as the greatest pound-for-pound fighter to ever live. For a short period of time in 1938, Armstrong dominated as the undisputed world champion at 3 divisions of featherweight, lightweight and middleweight, all at the same time. In the time when there was only one world champion per division, Armstrong was the unquestioned king from division of 126 to 147 pounds.

To put that into context, in today’s era of titles and half weight classes, there could be up to 20 “world champions” at any given time, covering the same weight division.

Remarkably, in 1940 Armstrong battled against middleweight champion Cerefino Garcia. A win would have made him a world champion in four divisions during the time when there were only eight divisions.

Most World Titles Won in Different Weight Classes: Manny Pacquiao
Manny Pacquiao’s fans have the tendency to make a great deal out of his world titles in eight divisions. Claiming it is proof that he’s the greatest pound-for-pound boxer of all time.

That’s a huge overstatement as in today’s alphabet soup era, world titles are pretty easier to come by than they used to be in previous eras. And Pacquiao’s light middleweight belt was achieved at a catchweight of 150 pounds, four under the true light middleweight limit.

Still, it’s a remarkable achievement and the one that is unlikely to be matched or surpassed. To put it into context, Pacquiao got his first world title at 112 pounds division. That means he increased 38 pounds, over a third of his body weight, to get his heaviest title. 

Most Times as Undisputed Heavyweight Champion: Muhammad Ali
Evander Holyfield has won the world heavyweight title five times, and that itself will be a hard record to beat. Holyfield used to be very good for a long time, in a very severe division, to get that record.

But the even more unbreakable record is Muhammad Ali’s achievement as the undisputed heavyweight champion. It’s hard enough to become an undisputed champion in today’s era of alphabet soup, let alone to reign three times.
To do it, Muhammad Ali won Sonny Liston in in 1964. Years later, he beated George Foreman to become the second man to regain the heavyweight crown, comes just after Floyd Patterson.
After losing the belt to Leon Spinks in a match in 1978, Ali won the title in an immediate rematch.

Longest Unbeaten Streak: Jimmy Wilde
Nicknamed “The Might Atom,” Welshman Jimmy Wilde is believed as one of the greatest flyweights ever and one of the leading boxers the United Kingdom has ever had. Between his professional debut in 1910 and his first loss in 1915, Wilde established an unbeaten streak of 103 fights.

Of course, many of these fights were fought in obscurity and none of them were hosted outside of the U.K. Without doubt the most impressive unbeaten streak in boxing history belongs to Sugar Ray Robinson.

After taking his first loss to Jake LaMotta in 1943, Robinson had winning streak until 1951. During that time he gathered the welterweight and then middleweight titles while going undefeatable in 91 straight fights.

The Longest Two KO Streaks: Carlos Zarate
Only a rare number of boxing stars have achieved exceptional knockout streaks of over 20 fights. Bantamweight wrecking machine Carlos Zarate is the only boxer to have been able to record two such streaks.

Zarate won his first 23 fights by stoppage. Following by a decision victory, he won by knocked out his next 28 opponents. During his second streak, he got the WBC bantamweight title and also won by knocked out Alfonso Zamora, who was also in the middle of achieving a 20-plus KO streak.

Zarate’s streak finished in appropriate fashion, against fellow knockout boxer Wilfredo Gomez, when Zarate decided to super bantamweight to challenge for the title. Between the two of them, Gomez and Zarate entered the combat with a combined record of 73-0-1 with 72 KOs. Eventually, Gomez prevailed, stopping and Zarate won in five.

The Oldest World Champion: Bernard Hopkins
Bernard Hopkins is the reigning WBA and IBF light heavyweight winner amd about to turn 50.

Hopkins is the oldest winner in boxing history, as well as the oldest professional athlete to compete at such a high level. Most elite professional boxers are made up  their training schedule from mid-to-late 30s.

Hopkins’ longevity is critical to his disciplined training and conditioning over the last years, and to his style, which has eliminated the damage he has put out. But he’s also began claiming that he’s an “alien” lately, and perhaps there’s something to that.

We are about to ready to begin considering science-fiction explanations for Hopkins at this point.

Hopkins faces the ferocious WBO champion Sergey Kovalev in November which made it a dangerous fight for anybody, including the 49-year-old man. But if ever it were possible for a person that age to compete against a monster like Kovalev, Hopkins is the one.

Ranking the Most Unbreakable Records in Boxing (Part 1)

A lot of boxing records are phenomenal with certain milestones are till now untouchable. Just as nobody will ever be able to forget Cy Young’s total of 511 wins or come close to Len Wickwar’s 468 professional bouts.

It might seems that breaking other records is feasible, but still seems unlikely till now. It isn’t impossible to break the record of Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak or Manny Pacquiao’s world titles in eight different divisions.
These are the top boxing records that are very difficult, to surpass. 

10. Youngest World Champion: Wilfred Benite

In March 1976, Wilfred Benitez won the WBC light welterweight title from Antonio Cervantes at just 17 years old to become the youngest champion in history. He was still six months away from turning 18 with high school classmates sitting in the front row cheering him up.

It would almost certainly that a case of a flyweight or lower from the Asia-Pacific or Latin America countries might break the record. But might be in a far far future. In Benitez’s case, he won and hold the title for almost a decade in a historically competitive weight against many all-time great in the category. Benitez later moved up, attempting to win the welterweight title, but lost to Ray Leonard. In May 1981 he defeated Maurice Hope to win the light middleweight title, and became the youngest champion in history that win in three-division.

9. Longest KO Streak with a World Championship: Wilfredo Gomez

There have been many longer KO streaks but none of those fighters became world champions. Following draw in his professional debut, Gomez defeated the next 32 opponents in four years of stretch to reign the WBC super bantamweight champion.

After taking his record with 32 KOs, Gomez moved up to featherweight to challenge Mexican legend Salvador Sanchez and took the first loss of his career.

After which, Gomez won eight more in a row by stoppage, including the first unanimous decision over Juan Laporte.

Before retiring, he won a third world title at super featherweight and become the greatest Puerto Rican star of all time.

Deontay Wilder is currently in striking distance of this record, with 32 straight KOs. But he’s yet to fight a true contender, let alone win a championship, while Gomez recorded the last 13 KOs of his streak in world title fights.
