Default Linear champions

Does anyone know the actual linear heavyweight champions (I mean the guy that beat the guy that beat the guy) from Bob Fitzsimmons on? Plus, I'm not sure how you do it when someone like Marciano retires undefeated or when a guy is stripped of his title, like Ali. I get a bit lost, particularly since Ali retired.

The man who beat the man formula has been debunked over and over as too defective to be useful. It's how you get someone like Dariusz Michalczewski rated as the "real" champ over Roy Jones which is a joke to anyone trying to be honest. To people trying to manipulate facts into a myth is another story. So if the champion beats someone, then sits on the title and/or faces a bunch of nobodies, how is he possibly champion?

The man who beat the man scenario ends for heavyweights in 1905 when Jeff retired. Boxing is a lot of politics and the man who has the "championship" whatever that may be, has been proven over and over to not necessarily be the best boxer in the world.
