Edwin Rodriguez already has an impressive Round 1 stoppage of a light heavyweight contender, and last November against Andre Ward, he proved he can no longer make the 168-pound limit.

In large part, becoming a true star in boxing has always involved moving up in weight class over the course of a career. This has become truer than ever since the emergence of half-classes like super featherweight and junior middleweight.
The fighters on this list have world-class talent. Most are already world champions. A successful step up in weight could propel any of them to potential superstar status.
