If you think the incredible amount of weight Pacquiao has climbed in the past 10 to 15 years is unheard of, though, you’re wrong. Other fighters -- many of whom are enshrined in the International Boxing Hall of Fame -- have packed on as much (and even more) weight than Pacquiao has.

Len Harvey, a middleweight and light heavyweight contender during the 1930s, competed in every weight class of his day. The British hero, who began boxing professionally at the ridiculously young age of 12 and fought until he was 36, literally grew from a flyweight to a heavyweight during his career.
