Re: The Real Deal stripped of WBA "super" title - Official
Absolutely ****ing disgraceful decision.
Geale is being punished for Sturm's failings.
It's kind of hard to take them seriously as a major world sanctioning body because they clearly are only interested in pandering to vested overseas interests & not in giving the fighters who fight for their titles a fair go (in this case, Geale).
Geale hasn't ducked Golovkin. He's taken the most lucrative fight available that is in the best interests of the sport in this country against a fighter who (officially) holds a win over him.
From now on, I'm only prepared to recognise the IBF & WBC as legitimate world sanctioning bodies. The WBA strap doesn't count.
That's bad news for Danny Green btw because he was only ever the interim WBC SM champ and his WBA LH title is what gave him full recognition as a world champion.
Sorry about that Danny & Green Machine fans but this decision is a ****ing joke.
I'm prepared to sacrifice Danny Green's official world championship status for the sake of principle.
**** the WBA forever. They no longer exist.
