Because The Ring belt isn't an "official" championship like the Alphabet Soup titles. It's just a belt given out by The Ring magazine to the winner of the fight between their recognised ranked 1 and 2. It's just held so highly by most boxing fans because they usually agree with top Ring ranked people and are glad to see them fight, so there's no cherrypicking.
