No.

He won an eliminator - but eliminators aren't title fights - I've had to Boxrec that btw.

If Lewis had lost to Tony Tucker (after Bowe & the trashcan incident) and not won anything later he wouldn't be either.

With him 'beating' Ali in the 3rd fight and pushing Holmes all the way, I think Norton is allowed to be an exception - because let's be honest, if Spinks defended against him he would have won the title anyway.
