Biggest predator? (Fringe topical at best)

Am I forgetting someone, folks, or is the Sperm Whale far and away the 
largest single predator of large lifeforms ever to live on Earth 
(excluding, rather arbitrarily, harvesters of krill)?  Or was there some 
Pliosaur that was bigger?

(I mean by "large" a product of length and weight -- excluding thereby a 
prime prey animal of old Physeter catodon, the giant squid, believed by 
some marine biologists to reach astounding lengths of up to 45m.)

Please confirm --
