For example, if Dirrell picked up a vacated belt and called out Froch, I'd say he needed to travel to the UK.
We'll agree to disagree then Jeff.But I think Ricky's as legitimate a champion at 135 as you'll get.His title resume is at least the equal of Vasquez and I freely admit Broner is the big name but I don't think Ricky should be viewed as a nonentity,which saying he'd be correctly slaughtered if he'd said it would suggest.
