I'll hazard a guess @ no.3 being Frazier after he lost to Foreman 1st time?

Racking my brains to think of any other late eighties Lightweight champion who was colourful and also won titles at higher weights. I'd say Chavez but he must have raked in a lot more than $6 million.

Camacho was gone from 135 lb by the time the eighties were getting to an end, nd he's already been used for one of your answers. Can't be Ramirez or Nazario for obvious reasons.

Paez won a Lightweight title in the nineties and a Featherweight one the decade before that?

Haven't worked out what I'm a connoisseur of either truss. When I solve this connoisseur conundrum, you'll be the first to know.
