Default Re: Heavyweights who were never the lineal champion but were the best on the planet

Ken Norton from circa 1976 to June 9, 1978 is the standout example on the modern era for me.

There have been times when future/past lineal champs have been the best HW on the planet but couldn't get a shot, for example Liston from about 1958-59; Max Schmeling in 1936 had a pretty good claim too...
