holmes and chavez?

and robert duran i think

edit : im confused now, why did u mention sanchez and pryor ?
they both lost once, sanchez as a young prospect, and pryor when he was old.

holmes was undefeated in 48 fights and hat 21 title defenses in a row until he lost to spinks.

chavez won 87 fights in a row without losing, and im sure he had more than 10 title fights.

lopez, floyd, and calzaghe are the only ones i know if him honest.
rocky marciano had 7 title fights.

In his first championship reign, Ali was undefeated in 10 titles fights. All the way from the first Liston fight to the Folley fight.

Then in his second championship reign, he was undefeated in 11 titles fights, before losing to Spinks.

I'm talking about having 10 wins or more in title fights for your entire career without losing a single title fight. Pryor and Sanchez never lost a world titlle fight, they both lost in non-title fights. Holmes and Chavez both lost title fights late in their careers. The 5 I mentioned never lost a single. world title fight.

He lost to Frazier, a title fight, so he wasn't undefeated in title fights. I'm talking about fighters who never lost a single title fight with 10 or more title fights for their entire career

Every one on your list other than Rocky lost title fights in their career. Marciano never lost a title fight, but only engaged in 7 title fights. I'm asking about fighters with 10 or more title fights that never lost throughout their entire career. Rocky was 7-0. Tyson lost 4 title fights. Holmes lost 4 title fights. Ali lost 3 title fights. Joe Louis lost 1 title fight. Lennox lost 2 title fights.

If you're going to count current fighters like Mayweather, you might as well add

Ivan Calderon with 11 defenses of his WBO minweight and 5 defenses of his WBO light flyweight title for a total of 18 title fights.
Zsolt Erdei with 13. 11 defenses of his WBO LHW and just won WBC CW.

Yes, they definitely count. Excellent additions.

Thanks. Kind of a shame not to seen Calderon get some p4p recognition, especially with someone like Cotto in there being KOd in half of his last 4 fights. And Ivan clearly having the skills of a p4p kinda guy. Flyweights and below get no love.

I agree. Calderon should be inducted into the IBHOF once eligible. He has had an excellent career
