agreed, its an tremendous record for a guy who only ever defended the wbo smw title, that one that was worthless when he won it.

to defend the wbo-worthless title for that long and fit in all the above whilst only defending wbo requires some incredibly tactful cherrypicking and superlative protected management. Makes Wlad's protected career look like Golden Boy's very own ODLH's.

a good acheivement in itsel, mind you. ten years is a long trek for anyone to keep defending any title.
