Hmm, East Side Boxing should put up a page with the lineal progression of titles for each division. It could be a project for the East Side Boxing Committee to put it together and submit.

it should be :

Foreman , Holyfield (after Foreman relinquished his alphabet titles , Foreman beat the highest contenders around at that time) , Lewis , Rahman , Lewis and so on.

Someone give an insight please
foreman beat schultz (at least on the cards), then lost to briggs (at least on the cards). then briggs ws knocked out by lewis

That is my little party piece; name the year, I name you THE World Champions for that year (up to 1996); sad I know.

Anyway for the earlier years you could stick Peter Jackson at the top of the list; he claimed the World Championship in the late 1880's and won recognition from Richard K Fox's Police Gazette as World Champion before Corbett beat Sullivan, plus he holds a 61 round draw with Corbett. Jackson lost his claim with a defeat to Jeffries, who strengthed his own claim with the Fitzsimmons win.

The 90s is a confusing era with all the ABC belts.

I have it like this:

Mike Tyson (1988-1990)
Buster Douglas (1990)
Evander Holyfield (1990-1992)
Riddick Bowe (1992-1993)
Evander Holyfield (1993-1994)
Michael Moorer (1994)
George Foreman (1994-1998 )
Shannon Briggs (1998 )
Lennox Lewis (1998-2001)
Hasim Rahman (2001)
Lennox Lewis (2001-2003)

I know that , but I was just asking if he retired for a short period after the Schulz fight , because if he did then I believe that vacated the lineal championship . So when he fought Briggs (after coming out of that short retirement) he wasnt champion.
If he didnt retire though and merely vacated the alphabet title he had , then he was champion when he fought Briggs.
What I was asking is did he retire officially for a short while after the Schulz robbery.
