Kessler should be down as champ on the 168 list on the basis of who he has beat, his record and who his only loss is to.
Doesn't work that way, you either have to beat the champ (something he failed to do) or you have to unify the division. He has a good chance at the latter if he can beat Taylor.

Actually, I believe a vacant spot can be claimed whenever the #1 and #2 rated guys face off. So, in the current lineup, the winner of Kessler-Bute would become the Ring champ.

Yep, those are the only 2 ways either beat the guy that has it or when the #1 and #2 face off. If not for that Mijares and Juan Diaz would have been Ring champ .

one thing I will never understand is how is Vic Darchinyan and Nate Campbell not the main champions of their division?
Cuz Ring Magazine doesn't recognize World Titles past giving the guy a #1 ranking. I don't particularly like it because a guy can be Ring Champion with no World Titles (like Calzaghe and Hatton) and can pretty much pick and choose anyone they ever want to fight. I've yet to see someone be stripped of the ring title for not defending it against the #1 ranked guy.

Come next week, say goodbye to Roy Jones on the Light Heavyweight list. Let his name RIP.
Looks like you were wrong. I do agree he should be out though, I'd pick Cloud, Diaconu, and Henry to knock him out.
Kessler should be down as champ on the 168 list on the basis of who he has beat, his record and who his only loss is to.
Who has he beaten to deserve the #1 spot? Andrade is the only one that comes to mind, but that's his only good win. Before Kessler, Beyer was getting beat by Bika until a clash of heads and Mundine hasn't proved himself against nobody of caliber (except Green).

Very much so, although I have a feeling we'll be seeing Roy Jones in the ring again. :thumbsdown:
We will DEFINITELY see Roy in the ring again. And I'm not talking about a creme puff either...the man will face an elite Light Heavyweight. I still believe he wants fights with both Tarver and Johnson again. Johnson I know would love it, he could KO Roy for a second time and hype the demand for Calzaghe to fight him even more. This is assuming Calzaghe sticks around for a few more fights...I don't see him taking Johnson in his very next fight.
