Quintuple champion

(Redirected from Quintuple Champion)

In different sports an athlete who wins five crowns, titles, medals, belts, or other distinctions is called a Quintuple Champion.

Boxing edit

In boxing, a quintuple champion is a boxer who has won world titles in at least five different weight classes.

The first man in boxing to earn this distinction was Thomas Hearns on November 4, 1988. Hearns won first the Welterweight (147 lbs) title, later annexed the Super Welterweight (154 lbs) belt. Rather than win the next closest division in weight, the Middleweight (160 lbs), he moved up three divisions to earn the Light Heavyweight (175 lbs) title. He moved down in weight to net the Middleweight (160 lbs) crown and finally moved back in weight up to Super Middleweight (168 lbs) to become the first Quintuple Champion in the history of boxing.

Since then some boxers have won six titles and become the Sextuple champions.
