The modern era of the past two decades in boxing have produced just four men and three women [Claressa Shields, Katie Taylor, Jessica McCaskill] to hold all four recognized world titles in the same weight class simultaneously.
Middleweights Bernard Hopkins and Jermain Taylor, who fought each other twice, were the first to do so followed by Terence Crawford [junior welterweight] and Oleksandr Usyk [cruiserweight].
