Re: Is this true? Saskul vs. Pacquiao was for the lineal 112 title. Explain.
Title went to Canto-Oguma winner, here's the line:
Canto < Park < Oguma < Avelar < Avelar < Cardona < Castillo < Mercedes < Magri < Cedeno < Kobayashi (not the hot dog eater) < Bernal < Chitalada < Kim (now at this point The Ring stops awarding belts) < Chitalada < Kittikasem < Arbachakov < Sasakul < Pacquiao
What they should have done was give Canto the title when Betulio Gonzalez (a fighter Canto beat) wins the WBA belt. That's how Larry Holmes got the HW title; Holmes KO'ed Mike Weaver, who in turn, KO'ed WBA champ John Tate.
