    Of course. Many. There are loads and loads of champions who staged zero defences. Foreman staged five i think, including one against Ken Norton.

    What kind of question is this?

    They serious need to warranty that grill for you Gordon!!!!! Jeez Louise.

    George put an incredible whooping on Ken Norton who had just split grueling fights with Ali. One of the scariest and most destructive performances in heavyweight history as a matter of fact. I believe Roman was also Ring Rated top 10.

    The question is null and void really.

    Mental to think that a list can go straight from Liston to Stiverne

    McLarnin (for one) never successfully defended a world title.

    Probably a lot more examples out there.
