The Greatest 2 Consecutive years for any Boxer- by Henry Armstrong
In 1937- 38 Hank went 27-0 (26 KOs) and won the featherweight title from Pete Sarron, while in 1938 he was 14-0 (10 KOs) and added the undisputed welterweight and lightweight titles in consecutive bouts against fellow HOF'ers Ambers and Barney Ross. While also beating Future MW champ Garcia, in a 10 rounder.
This, IMO may be the greatest accomplishment in history, and will never be done again.
