Off the top of my head;

Duran moving up two weight classes to beat Ray Leonard in his prime.

McLarnin starting his career at Flyweight and beating ATG WW's.

Bob Fitzsimmons winning the Lineal Middleweight Title, moving up to Heavyweight at less than 170 Lbs and winning the Lineal Heavyweight Title, moving back down to Light Heavyweight and winning the Lineal Light Heavyweight title.

These are just 3 that come in to the top of my head.

Hopkins defending his title at 47 is a great feat and Chad Dawson is a good fighter but it say it's the greatest feat in the history of Boxing is of course, absurd.
