If there was only one champion people would still want to fight him to get the title. People can hide behind ABC titles and avoid facing 'the man' (who, regardless of the title he holds is usually recognisable in a division) due to them already holding a 'belt'.
That's a great opinion.The only time you usually saw people unify back in the day, was due to some huge money being earned.I will always respect Salvador Sanchez, Aaron Pryor, and Larry Holmes, but to some extent, they could have unified.
