I don't literally mean nothing... what I mean is... are you really considered "THE BIG ONE" the major "IT" in boxing if you become a champion holding just one belt... and then lose it? Would people brush you aside and forget about you? Are you only really something if you win every single possible major title in that weight division and hold them all at once? What are your thoughts on this issue I am raising... I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO KNOW

I think there should only be one belt in each weight class so that we can eliminate all the confusion about who is the real champ. 1 belt 1 champ.

there is always somebody in the division considered the best, he is the fighter who beat the man that beat the man that......, take floyd for example he is curently the wbc champ at 147 but is considered the linal champ because he beat baldomir who beat zab who was holding all the belts, the only reason floyd isnt undisputed champ is because baldomir gave up the other belts to fight gatti.

Now Folyd needs to go get the other belts. if there was only 1 belt there could only be 1 champ. Has Floyd ever been undisputed champ in any weight class?

Thats what I mean about him. He wont ever be the best that ever did it. The chance for him to be the best is there but he wont take the fights that will get him there.

TommyGunz' right on the money. Floyd could win me over though if he stays around long enough to fight either Margarito, Mosley or Williams in about a year. Roy Jones unified the division (albeit one of the weekest in the sport). Floyd has never had the courage for that.

Your good if you win a title.
Your a true champ if you successfully defend the title.
Your great if your undisputed.
Your a legend if your undisputed and you successfully defend all the title.

I think there should only be one sanctioning body for boxing. This would eliminate a lot of confusion and show people that there is only one real champ.

let them have a unification competition like they did with the super middleweights. to see who is the real champ. which i think there isnt any elite boxers at heavyweight. the only one i seen moving and doing good was holyfield in his previous fight. no other guy has shown leg movement like him and his in his fourties.

Yeah, but i do think that Klitschko has a good mix of skills that will keep him at the top for the forseeable future. Good size, great power, a very good jab, and good reach. His movement isnt the best, but it doesnt have to be when you can keep a guy at the end of your jab all night long.
