    Default Boxing Records Least likely to be broken...

    What do you think are the boxing records in general or for a specific weight class that are least likely to be broken?

    Here's a couple I think are pretty safe
    Joe Louis' 25 Consecutive Successful Title Defenses at Heavyweight

    Wilfredo Benitez's youngest Champion at 17 years old

    Mike Tyson youngest heavyweight champion at 20 years old

    Evander Holyfield 5 time heavyweight champion

    Edwin Valero's 18 consectutive 1st round KO's

    I think Marciano's 49-0-0 will be beaten 9as Larry Holmes and even Nicolay Valuev have been within 1 fight of matching it), but I doubt the fighter that beats it ends his career undefeated.

    Can you guys think of any others?

    From the one's you listed I think Tysons most likely to be done.
    I doubt anyone ever comes close to The Brown Bomber.

    "Finito" Lopez 51-0 with 21 consecutive title defenses... Along with 25 straight title fights.

    What about most professional fights? I don't even know who holds that record...

    Probably impossible to beat in the modern era, though.

    Totally flinging it here but couple that would be cool to know....most 15th round ko's ? Champions who won all belts on Tech decisions. Sung kil moon ?

    Most draws ? An old crusty here but only fighter to lose a fight on every continent except Antartica Bruce Strouse.
    Hottest female fighter who could kick my azz 10 times...Lucia Riker. Fact. Good thread...

    Most defences of the unified heavy title (WBC, IBF and WBA) Mike Tyson holds that.

    Youngest ever heavyweight champ, Mike Tyson Holds that.

    The fighter who appears in the biggest upsets of the sport the most, Mike Tyson holds that

    The only 22 year old to have won Ring magazine fighter of the year Twice, Mike Tyson holds that.

    All together Mike has 12 Ring awards, 2 fighter of the years, 1 fight of the year, 1 KO of the year, 2 upset of the years, 4 events of the year, 1 round of the year and 1 prospect of the year.

    For wins modern might be that dude Buck smith? Tons of unsanctioned fights, use to fight 3,4 times a week or so. The one who looked like he took a dive vs Chavez.

    As soon as I saw the title of the thread Joe Louis' record came to mind!

    I'm sure I don't need to remind you though Lyle that Wlad is on 10 next time round and if he keeps fighting 3 times a year he COULD do it! Long way to go yet but considering the state of the division at the minute and the lack of young talent emerging in the HW's it is not totally unthinkable. I still think Haye could upset all that but for me he is the only person who "COULD".

    That said a lot can happen in 5-6 years and it probably will!!

    Foreman comeback and winning the heavyweight title so many years later.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    Tyson may have had some kind of unified deal under modern bullshit but Louis was the undisputed champion and still holds the record at 25 defenses.

    Yeah but there was a reason Louis's defences were called bums of the month.

    Im gonna have a look and compare the calibre of fighters that Tyson and Louis defended their titles against. I bet Mikes were a far better quality over all

    Good records all. Of this list, however, I hold Holyfield's record in the lowest regard. Winning a HW title more than once can be due to so many things. Theoretically, you can... retire and come back, retire and come back, retire and come back... Winning titles in different weight divisions is more impressive to me.

    That being said, I doubt Holyfield's record gets broken with the state of the HW division as it is today. (Unless Wlad decides to retire and un-retire five times).

    If title defenses against the likes of Bonehugger Smith and Tony Tubbs turns you on ok.
