What Heavyweight Champions never fought a top 10 HW all-time?

It seems that there are quite a few. Who are they?

Even with the disolved materia lthat is the ''world title'' these days it's hard to find a guy who had a belt and didn't fight a top 10 guy.

Do you mean not a top 10 HW all-time, or one of the top 10 HWs in the world at the time they fought?

Well he did last longer than Tim Sylvia did,I think he deserves as much credit for that as Sylvia does for breaking the "gentleman's agreement" to simply box Mercer in an mma bout


Rocky Balboa and Clubber Lang

So were none of the Ten title defenses Balboa made against Top ten opposition?

It does seem they were against the kind of opposition that Balboa would look good against. I believe Mickey admitted as much
