Unlike most regional belts(eg ABC pan-pacific or whatever) this one makes sense to me as it's like having the English title as well as the British . It's a good stepping stone towards the real European title and is only available to fighters from the EU .
To be honest I wasn't sure which belt Frag had won so I checked on boxrec and it said EBU-EU but I only remembered the EBU bit.
There are enough stepping stones in boxing. Its getting too much. Just imagine a fighter going through the belts:
Southern Area title
minor org belts i.e. WBC international
It gets a bit much.
