I recently started following boxing and was wondering why is Tyson Fury considered as the lineal heavyweight champion even though he doesn’t have a championship belt.

Lineal is some bullshit made up title it carries exactly zero weight in anything but fantasies of a subsection of boxing fans who sit at home and jerk off over how “technically” fury is still the champ. Which he isnt.

Basically the lineal champ is the man who beat the man. Since no one beat fury (due to suspension he was stripped of the titles) these fans don’t see aj and wilder as the champions.
