Re: There should be one world title belt in every weight division
Yeah i was going to mention the Ring belt. I think the boxing public would see a lot more exciting fights with just 1 world title belt. So everyone can fight anyone and work their way up without gift mandatories.
So an IBF guy can't only just fight another IBF guy. He has to fight them all as their would be only 1 boxing org. But big moneys involved and it means more than legacy. More belts is just a way for the boxing orgs to make more cash and make bigger stars. So many hypejobs are made through the paper titles and meaningless belts. And then television networks along with the promoters and promotional companies can make better cards as there's more belts on the line.
So they can make pointless unifications. If you win a fight you move up in line. Say Kosta Tszyu is 5th and Vince Phillips is 6th they have to fight eachother to fight the 3th and 4th place winner. Then winner of that should then fight the winner of 1th and 2th. It doesn't work that way but it would bring more excitement to the sport.
Instead of the world champ fighting the guy next in line, he can then make an excuse and pick an easier opponent with all these diff orgs and rules for each of the titlists.
