Default Trivia: 5 (6?) HOF'ers who all fought each other!

We're looking for groups of at least 5 Hall of Famers (IBHOF only!), where each man in a group fought everybody else in the group.
(can't find a 6'er - but there should be at least a handful of 5'ers)

It's tough because there are some guys like Ike Williams and Bob Montgomery who fought many of the same guys, just not ALL of the same guys.

This made me boxrec Tony Canzoneri and I was reminded of how many great and/or talented fighters he faced throughout his career.

Lou Ambers
Jimmy McLarnin
Barney Ross
Benny Bass
Kid Chocolate
Frankie Klick
Billy Petrolle
Baby Arizmendi
Johnny Jadick
Jack Berg
Johnny Dundee
Bud Taylor

and on and on.

Yes, that is indeed an impressive career... and a great shame he had that last fight. Imagine if he had retired before that - without ever having been stopped in 174 bouts. That would REALLY have been something!

Apparently this isn't as easy as I thought, as you guys have come up with only 2 groups so far (at least 4 more out there).

Hint: There's a certain era where several boxers, who would later become HOFers, weren't given a chance to fight for a world title - so instead they fought each other. Not once, but MANY times!

DeepSleep named a group from a completely different era - which may not be the only one hiding there!

From reading your hint the first names that came to mind were;

Willis
Jeanette
Langford
McVey

I would say Jack Johnson but I'm pretty sure he never fought Willis.

Someone with more knowledge of this era might be able to name the fifth if there is one.
