You're right. The reason is so the media manufacture paper champions by allowing them to win titles against nobodies. Do you actually think Bute or Chavez Jr. would've been champions if there was only 1 belt per division?

One of the biggest problems we have in boxing is fighters avoiding challenging fights. This is directly because of the surplus of belts we now have. Less belts = less ducking.

Lastly many people who have been watching this sport longer than either of us would say that boxing has devolved, not evolved.
