I never got this logic.
When Ward goes up in his first fight at LHW and fights for a title will that mean,that if say..Cloud beats him, that it will be a fight of no consequence because Ward has "done nothing" at LHW?
You cant just ignore the career a guy had 7-8 lbs south of where hes fighting. It happens here all the time and its just stupid.
If you're an undisputed champ at a division and you go up.you're career doesnt just start over!
Marcio Rubio is rated quite highly by many sanctioning bodies and Pavlik hammered him back at 160, does that no longer count?
