THE LINEAL SUPER MIDDLEWEIGHT CHAMPIONS
 
The Super-Middleweight Division is another of those ill-conceived and needless creations. Billy "Dynamite" Douglas had a one-fight "reign" in 1974, in a fight sponsored by the Columbus, Ohio Boxing Commission. A fighter with a more legitimate claim is Jerry "Wimpy" Halstead for the newly created "World Athletic Association Junior Light Heavyweight" title in 1982. Halstead won a 6th-round kayo of Ron Brown. "Wimpy" soon outgrew the division.

In March 1984, Murray Sutherland won the IBF title with a 15-round win over Ernie Singletary. Sutherland promptly lost to Chong-Pal Park in July 1984. Park defended through December 1987 when he fought for the newly created WBA title, which he won. The IBF then stripped him, but the "lineal" title descends from Park.
