    Default Worse ever holder of a heavyweight world title?

    Does not have to be the real linear HW champ,it can be one of the joking champions who have held paper titles.(wbc,ibf,wba,wbo ect.)

    In the last few years there are so many to pick from.



    But from 1980 and before I would say Canera,Jess Willard and Jim Bradock jump to the front of my mind.

    How can we also forget The "White water buffalo" Frans Botha.Gets IBF strap on a terrible blindman descision against Axel Shultz and then gets stripped 3 months later for using the funny juice.
