Please read: Can you link two disparate fighters from different eras just by the people they fought...?
and the people their opponents fought etc.
Let me show you what I mean:
Vitali Klitschko fought Lennox Lewis
Lennox Lewis fought Evander Holyfield
Evander Holyfield fought John Ruiz
John Ruiz fought Roy Jones
Roy Jones fought Bernard Hopkins
Bernard Hopkins fought Oscar De La Hoya
Oscar De La Hoya fought Pernell Whitaker
Pernell Whitaker fought Jose Luiz Ramirez
Jose Luis Ramirez fought Hector Camacho
Hector Camacho fought Roberto Duran
So I linked Klitschko to Duran by the people they fought and their opponents' opponents etc.
Lets see if you guys can link the following fighters together:
1) Larry Holmes to Jim Jeffries
2) John Ruiz to Joe Gans
and any others you want.
Here is quite an amazing one:
John L Sullivan to Ponsaklek Wonjongkam:
John L Sullivan > James Corbett > James Jeffries > Jack Johnson> Bearcat Wright > Max Baer > Joe Louis > Rocky Marciano > Archie Moore > Muhammed Ali > Larry Holmes > Mike Tyson > Evander Holyfield > John Ruiz > Roy Jones Jr. > Bernard Hopkins > Oscar De La Hoya > Manny Pacquiao > Jorge Solis > Cristobal Cruz > Cornelius Lock > Daniel Ponce De Leon > Celestino Caballero > Steve Molitor > Scotty Olson > Michael Carbajal > Jorge Arce > Vic Darchinyan > Cristian Mijares > Francisco Arce > Jesus Jimenez > Santiago Ivan Acosta > Luis Concepcion > Eric Ortiz > Julio Cesar Miranda > Pongsaklek Wonjongkam.

Awesome bro, great question and a great historical exercise that really links every boxer who ever laced up the gloves to every other fighter in history. Questions like this are why I love Yahoo boxing and contributors like you are what make this site great.
