Re: alex leapai. the southern hemespheres first heavyweight world champ.
Ok so where do we draw the line? Do we include IBO? WBF? IBC? IBA? WBB? Corrie Sanders IMO will go down as a solid contender but won't be recognised by most as a former Heavyweight champion. Gerrie Coetzee wasn't a linear champion, but he was a world champ. I don't recognise Sanders as that. Just my 2c. Just like I don't recognise Povetkin right now.
If the question was how many world champions has Great Britain had, I'd laugh if anyone included Herbie Hide, put it that way.
