Here might be a fun thing to do, have a boxing slant on the above.
It is said that you can connect one person to another in 6 steps.
So why not boxers, however lets be as creative as we can.

SRR fought Jake LaMotta

Jake LaMotta was played in 'Raging Bull' by Robert DeNiro

John L Sullivan fought Tom Sharkey in an exhibition fight.
Sharkey fought James Jeffries.
Jeffries fought Jack Johnson.
Jack Johnson's life was told in a movie called "The Great White Hope" starring James Earl Jones.
James Earl Jones played Darth Vader in Star Wars with Harrison Ford.
Harrison Ford dated Minnie Driver.

Thank you very much Kostya. It can actually be done in 5.

who starred in numerous films with John Wayne

whose great-nephew/namesake Tommy Morrison

appeared in Rocky V, as did Sage Stallone

who also appeared in The Manson Family, playing one of the victims of Charles Manson.

Sugar Ray Robinson

John F. Kennedy

John F. Kennedy is Edward Kennedy's older brother
Ali presented Edward Kennedy a pair of boxing gloves (http://www.jfklibrary.org/JFK+Library+and+Museum/News+and+Press/Museum+at+JFK+Presidential+Library+to+Display+Boxi ng+Gloves+of+Muhammad+Ali.htm)
Ali and Sugar Ray Robinson are connected in like a gazillion boxing documentaries.

I guess that would work too.

I was thinking of

Sugar Ray Robinson beat Henry Armstrong
Henry Armstrong beat Barney Ross
Barney Ross's friend Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald
Lee Harvey Oswald killed John F.Kennedy

Robert De Nero won an oscar for Raging Bull
