Re: The Transnational Boxing Rankings
13 months ago. Dude was all but eliminated by Kirkland anyway.
Champions are crowned only where a defined lineage could be identified. Divisions where this was not the case can only see a champion crowned when the #1 meets the #2.
So for example, if Trout and Mayweather met at 154lbs., a new lineage is established. If Mayweather then retires, the #1 and #2 need to meet to re-establish.
