Dempsey due to the racial politics of the day.

The fight against Wills was signed but didn't happen & while it was ****ty from a fan's perspective probably saved lives if Wills had won. Riots broke out all across the US after Jack Johnson beat Jeffries & several people were killed and Johnson broke many taboo's and thumbed his nose at White America which made it much more unlikely that Black challengers would get a shot at the HW title for quiet a while.

Jack Johnson

John L. Sullivan

Tommy Morrison..maybe? Not sure how many defenses he had.

Buster Douglas...maybe? Again, not sure how many defenses he had..

Wladimir Klitschko...if you consider him the Lineal Champion (I do, some don't)...has obviously never fought Vitali.
