Montell Griffin was a small LHW
Tyson wasn't altogether small, but short for a HW

Roberto Duran looked tiny in comparison to the majority of his opponents above lightweight

and James Toney's another guy that's been short for his weight class but successful

Guys from the UK: Jimmy Wilde, Ted Kid Lewis

Lewis started at Flyweight and fought Heavyweights, albeit no one credible. He did fight credible LHWs however.

Wilde mostly stayed within Flyweight and Bantamweight, but he himself was below Strawweight in a time where Strawweight didn't exist.
