The whole 1v2 thing according to those who follow linearity.
In theory Ali remained champ till he retired and whilst Holmes assumed the number 1 spot he never beat number 2 and a parkinsons riddled Ali doesn't count.
I think he was the best HW out there from Norton till retirement but I'm just saying his status doesn't hold true when 1v2 is enforced.
