The heavyweights of the current era are gargantuan, led by oversized titleholders Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua, who outweigh many great champions of the past by 50 or more pounds.

However, we’ve seen unusually large heavyweights throughout the history of boxing, going as far back as the early part of the 20th century. And some of these bygone behemoths reached the pinnacle of the sport, becoming champions.

Here is a list of the 10 heaviest heavyweight titleholders ever.

A few guidelines:

The heavyweights are ranked according to their weight while they were titleholders. We include their weight when they lost their titles if they were at their heaviest in that fight. We also include their heaviest weights of their careers, even if they didn’t hold a title at the time. The weights were found on, the official record keeper of the sport.
