Best I can come up with for this:

Jack Johnson once fought Victor McLagen

who starred in numerous films with John Wayne

whose great-nephew/namesake Tommy Morrison

appeared in Rocky V, as did Sage Stallone

who also appeared in The Manson Family, playing one of the victims of Charles Manson.

I guess that would work too.

I was thinking of

Sugar Ray Robinson beat Henry Armstrong
Henry Armstrong beat Barney Ross
Barney Ross's friend Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald
Lee Harvey Oswald killed John F.Kennedy

Good one, my way is:

Jack Dempsey was married to Estelle Taylor
Estelle Taylor starred in Don Juan with John Barrymore
John Barrymore was the paternal grandfather of Drew Barrymore
Who starred in ET

Good go.
My way was:

Jersey Joe Walcott beat Joe Baksi
Joe Baksi beat the actor Jack Palance
Jack Palance won an oscar in City Slickers a film that starred Billy Crystal
Billy Crystal co-starred in AnalyzeThis with Robert De Nero
Robert De Nero won an oscar for Raging Bull
Which also starred Joe Pesci.

Analyze that Oscar
