Actually, Botha is not officially recognized as champ by the IBF as the bout's result when he "won" the IBF title was changed to no contest so technically he should not be here. Also, Lee Savold was not recognized by any of the serious sanctioning bodies either...

Here's a fun fact. Max Baer, the champion from 34-35. His son played Jethro Bodine in The Beverly Hillbillies.
