unfortunately, dozens of fighters around the world do the same thing.
win a belt, advertise themselves as a 'world champ' and milk it to the masses while flying in B grade challengers with excellent padded records...looks good but most armchair fans dont know they are getting duped.
read a BBC report from one of their boxing journos the other day implying that one of their brits should be recognised as a 'great' because he had won 2 'world titles' - complete scam and journos should know better (cant remember who it was)
