Lineal Super Middleweight World Champions

On March 28, 1984, Murray Sutherland, with a modest record of 41-11-1, defeated Ernie Singletary to become the first internationally accepted World Champion in the 168lbs weight class. Over 30 years have passed since the Scotsman was crowned champion, but initially, boxing’s elite seemed to merely use it as a pit-stop, en-route to Light Heavyweight. In the 1990s, the likes of Roy Jones Jr., Nigel Benn and Chris Eubank, helped it gain more recognition, but it was perhaps the crowning of Lineal Champion, Joe Calzaghe, in 2006, that finally put it on an equal footing with boxing’s traditional weight classes.
