The thought just crossed my mind. Colin Jones had 2 that I know of. Did he ever fight Starrling back then? Anyway, if you know who tried the most times then post up..........Rockin':boxing:

Rocky Juarez fought Barrera twice for the WBC SFW title then went on to challenge JMM for the same title. Fought Chris John twice for the WBA FW title.

That's 5.

Sakio Bika is 4-0-1 in world title fights (i dont count the IBO as a 'world' title)

I think his record is 0-2-1 in World title bouts. He did lose another 2 in Title Eliminators, But that's not really title bouts.
