Default 3 World Title Fights/4 Months

Jaime Munguia is just about set to fight his third world championship fight in 4 months. I'm not here to argue the semantics of who he fought or how limited he may or may not be. I'm just simply asking if anyone can remember the last time a fighter fought 3 world championship fights in 4 months? I'm struggling to remember the last time this has been done.

3 title fights in 4 months is indeed an amazing feat. The ones I know from memory who had many title fights in a short span were mike tyson and Trinidad.

Tyson won the WBC on 1986-11-22 and defended it on the 1987-03-07 and 1987-05-30, three times in a span of about 6 months.

Trinidad won the Ibf on 1993-06-19, defended it on 1993-08-06 and 1993-10-23, three times in about 4 months.

De La Hoya had 3 defenses in 5 months.

Excellent memory! I miss the days of active fighters.

Haven’t even given this thought. Impressive feat if it does occur. Munguia won the the title 5/12/18 so he would fall in the 5 month/3 defense category with DLH
