it sure does, look for anyone with GBP links to be favoured on the lists now.LeedsLad said:Its on boxingscene, turns out DLH and his monkeys have decided to buy the ring magazine. Is that its credibility out of the window? I think it makes the ring title about as meaningless as the ABC straps..
I disagree. While the Ring mag may not have changed things from your perspective I disagree. The Ring rankings are recognized nationally as the real deal. The Ring Champ is also recognized as the actual champ rather than paying attention to all of the alphabet titles. The Ring was once a separate entity with much respect for being the ultimate authority. Now they are basically owned by Oscar's company, and in my opinion this is bad for boxing.Rayman said:The Ring has been around forever and really hasn't done anything to improve boxing. They've railed against the governing bodies forever...No change, as a matter of fact it's pretty well bottomed. You really have to work at being a fan with the lack of exposure. Meanwhile, you can turn on SPIKE TV or others and watch UFC, MMA almost any night of the week. Maybe this has taken a toll on the old guard and they just want to get out. Price must have been right too. Of course this is pure conjecture, but it makes sense.
