Which should the world really and truly consider to be the legitimate TITLE?!

So i think i agree. The WBA has the purest heritage and is the one that was born out of recognizing the "Universal" champion since the days of John Sullivan in 1882. The others were just "made up" for the sake of money. As for Ring magazine... what happens if someone else comes along and starts publishing a magazine? Even if it's a good mag, why should that be the format allowed to "determine" anything? Lots to think about, huh?
(They should do away with all of it and just have a CHAMP)
