It's now apparent that #Khanelo is upon us. Whether you wanted to see Saul "Canelo" Alvarez against Amir Khan or not, it's here.

In honor of Khan moving up a division or two in taking on Canelo, this week on the history edition of Top Men Boxing Radio we talk about fights in which one of the competitors moved up a division or more to face a larger champion. Quite a few fighters played weight games: "Sugar" Ray Robinson, Stanley Ketchel, Henry Armstrong and many more.

Compubox operator/historian Aris Pina and Patrick Connor of The Fight City (and more) are the two you want recounting these historical fights.
