WBA,WBC,IBF,WBO,IBO,WBF........WHERE DOES IT END.


With so many belts,champions and super-champions, I believe boxing should get back to the one-weight-one champion era, to rid boxing of all the politics and BS.


One of the greatest periods for boxing was the Duran-Hearns-Hagler-RayLeonard era, when these warriors all got it on with each other and CHAMPION meant the CHAMPION, not the guy who had the best management team.



Dimtri Salita said he wanted to fight for a world title as soon as Gavin Rees won the WBA belt and immediately called out Rees (a small limited fighter), now Rees has lost his world title lets see if Salita calls out the likes of Hatton,Witter,Kotelnik or Torres (the top guys at 140).

Or if he will continues to fights bums and wait for another limited fighter to win a world title and go after him.

It was Ray Leonard who fought Duran-Hearns-Hagler not Ray Robinson. ;)

We have the ring title these days, that is the linear champion of the division,,,,those soup[ titles mean nothing when it comes to this.

In an ideal world, yeah. Today its simply impossible
Its not impossible just needs a little thought.
You can keep all the alphabet titles as what they are The WBC WBA champion etc but ban them from using the word WORLD champion Only one gets to use that That one being The Ring World Champion
The trinket titles are great for former champions to show the belts to their grandkids etc but let there be only one World Chapion at a time

I always wanted to know this as well but I havr a feeling this problem is only gonna get worse before it gets better. Money talks louder than the fans.

I must admit the rings credibility has lessened since DLH took over but its still wayyyyyy more believable than the soup brigade
