Default Longest winning streak by a champ - against the SAME opponent?

We're looking for the world champion, who can claim the most wins in a row against one and the same opponent.
(a draw or NC ends the streak)

The streak need not be consecutive fights, but may be found in between many other wins/losses against other opponents...
in other words: we're only looking at the fights against that one particular opponent, we're interested in.

Example: Archie Moore won 4 of 5 fights against Harold Johnson, but since the one fight he lost was the 3rd in their series...
he can claim a winning streak of only 2 against Johnson.

(As always; we're counting newspaper decisions as well as official decisions)

I'm on my way to church but the 1st one that comes to me is that Harry Wills beat Sam Langford 7 straight times, But their might be a longer one.

Yes, a question like this naturally makes you think of the great series between Britton and Lewis...
but 4 in a row isn't enough to win this category.

Yes... but Wills was never a world champion, so he doesn't count!

Ok, maybe I should have said world champion recognized by BoxRec, in order to make sure we were all on the same page.

But, hh... you're now leading the pack with 6!
