Who in your opinion are the best boxing brothers? Also who are your personal favourites?

Vitali and Wladomir Klitchko

Bruce and Donald Curry

Rafael and Juan Marquez

Leon and Michael Spinks

Kaokor and Khaosai Galaxy

Mike and Tommy Gibbons

Orlin and Terry Norris (brothers right?)

Just some examples off of the top of my head there, was gonna add Matthew Hatton and Jose Cotto ect but it was getting silly! Feel free to select any boxing brothers not on the short list

My favourites are most definitely the fabulous Marquez Brothers

Orlando and Gaby Canizales.

The Gibbons brothers are probably the best by some distance.

Just thought of another pair, Dick and Randy Turpin. Hardly the Gibbons brothers but worth a mention


I always feel bad for the Bobby Pacquaio's of the world, living in their brothers shadows.... Hell i didnt even know Larry Holmes HAD a brother until recently!

if you are going on quality you can strike ornelas and andrade off of the list as well, lol
they arent very good
andrade should have a kayo win over bute, for whatever that's worth


more than other athletes you find lots of brothers heading into boxing

i'm sure more names will come to me eventually

Bute IS very good imo (dont like him but he good) and yes Andre should have a win over him that was horse *****!

I think all the very best ones have probably been named already tbh, but there are bound to be many more high level brothers

Hey Kevin and Chris Finnegan were good fighters

So who are ur own favourites bud?

If we are counting the half brothers, it would be Hagler and Simms.

However if not I'd go with the Baer brothers.

Though hardly the best, Mike Weaver was followed into the sport by his brothers. I don't remember seeing them fight much except for Troy, who was the most exciting of the "Weaver triplets". And Travis and Tarvis Simms are twins.

You forgot the Dirrell brothers. Both haven't accomplished too much right now but they still have their whole careers ahead of them and both are quite talented.

andre dirrell is a friggin talent

if he had the mental make-up and toughness of andre ward he'd be very dangerous with his skills speed and punching power

I actually forgot about the Taylors, older brother Myron was a featherweight contender for a few years too.

Also Harold and Frankie Warren.

Roger Leonard was Ray's older brother and O'dell Leonard was a cousin of Ray's. I once went to a sparring session where Ray sparred with O'dell.

I don't know if they have been mentioned but Bruce and Donald Curry were bro's and had another brother named Grayland that was a pro too.

There used to be a guy at several forums named Kiki who was the father of the Baltazar brothers, Tony, Frankie and one I can't remember.
