All boxing needs is an honest ranking system that has the prestige such that one isn't considered a champion unless they sit atop those rankings. Until that day there will be no clarity.
Well, there is clarity today.

Prestige comes later and really depends on the media and the fans and the gradual acceptance of what we already know --that the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board reflects boxing's globalism, refuses to be compromised by the profit motive or any other corrupting influence, and that it can help the sport regain its senses after being on the ropes for the past 50 years.

It ain't gonna be easy.
