I'll leave it to others to trudge through boxingrec. Dick Tiger and Fritzie Zivic might be worth looking at though both racked up a lot of losses all through their careers.

Jim Braddock-25 Losses
Fritzie Zivic-24 Losses
Archie Moore-19 Losses
Joe Brown-18 Losses
Jersey Joe Walcott-16 Losses
Joey Maxim-16 Losses
Tony Zale-15 Losses
Dick Tiger-14 Losses
Jake Lamotta-13 Losses
Manuel Ortiz-12 Losses
Freddie Mills-12 Losses

There's a fair good few (Note some of these could not be a 100% accurate and some may be incomplete due to the era the fighter was fighting in)
