In history of heavyweight were some else fighter`s, who probably deserve title.
For example, Donovan Ruddock.
He have very good fights with serious fighters:
vs ex-champion Mike Weaver, win by UD, 1986;
vs ex-champion James (Bonecrusher) Smith, win by KO in 7, 1989;
vs ex-champion Michael Dokes, win by KO in 4, 1990;
vs ex-champion on that time Mike Tyson, loss by very doubtful TKO in 7 and UD, 1991;
vs ex-champion Greg Page, win by TKO in 8, 1992;
vs Phil Jackson, win by KO in 4, 1992.
Only after defeat from Lewis his career has gone down.

Jerry Quarry, Earnie Shavers and Ken Norton came along at a bad time for them. Norton was given the title by one of the alphabet groups, but I always figured you had to win it in the ring. If not, I could pay someone off and be the champ! Ray Mercer probably should be on this list as well.

Langford was definitely the non champ most deserving of having been one, but he wasn't a heavyweight, though he did beat some HW's of the day.

Well, as you already stated he fought some fights in the HW division (against Jack Johnson f.e.) and cause of this I thought I'd be allright to list him here.
