We haven't had too many. The answer is probably in a history book.

america rated its best ever heavyweight NEVER to fight for a world title. his name was fred fulton. here is a bit about him, with a link.

Quote:
5. Fred Fulton 6’6 ”, 215 (Top Contender from 1914 to 1921)
Record Total: 26- 4-2 86%
Carl Morris(3-2), Al Palzer(0-1), Al Kaufman(1-0), Arthur Pelkey(2-0), Porky Dan Flynn(5-0), Fireman Jim Flynn(1-0), Charley Weinert(2-0), Sam Langford(2-0), Gunboat Smith(2-0), Billy Miske(1-0), Frank Moran(2-0), Jack Dempsey(0-1), Willie Meehan(3-0), Bartley Madden(1-0-1), Harry Wills(0-1), Bob Roper(2-0-1): *Fights while he was in his prime
Best Fight of His Career: 1917 Sam Langford 7-KO Win
Rating Analysis: From 1914 to 1922 he lost 4 fights and two were disqualifications and the other two were to Harry Wills and Jack Dempsey. During that time he won 67, lost 2, with two disqualifications and 3 draws. Fulton was a very dominate fighter but he could not get past the two top fighters of the period, Jack Dempsey and Harry Wills. You could make a strong argument for him being rated higher.

les darcy, who won the australian heavyweight title as a middleweight, knocked fred fulton COLD in 2 rounds in a spar in the US.

my best ever aussie bred heavy goes to darcy. with tony mundine a long second.

Disregarding holders of the Australian Heavyweight title who were rated in lower divisions ie Darcy, Richards, Sands & Mundine, the best were Peter Jackson, Joe Goddard & Paddy Slavin.
