In different sports, a sportsperson who wins eight crowns, titles, medals, belts, or other distinctions is called an octuple champion.[citation needed]


In boxing, an octuple champion is a boxer who has won world titles in eight different weight classes.

Manny Pacquiao is the first and only boxer to win world titles in eight different weight divisions. Pacquiao clinched the feat when he defeated Antonio Margarito via a unanimous decision and won the WBC Super Welterweight (154 lbs) title at a catch weight of 150 lbs on November 13, 2010 at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium. Five of his world championships came from the "Big Three" (WBA, WBC, IBF) sanctioning bodies, one from the less regarded (WBO) & two were from The Ring, which hands out a symbolic version of the lineal championship. He also won a world championship belt from the IBO in the Light Welterweight division. The following are the world titles won by Pacquiao (arranged chronologically):
