Default Re: Herbie Hide is the EU mandatory

There are enough stepping stones for British boxers , with Area , National(English/Scottish etc) , British , Commonwealth .

But in other European countries they only have the national title(eg Spanish) and nothing else that helps with the goal of fighting for the European title .

British fighters do not fight for the EU title as much for that reason but the EU belt is certainly a positive for many boxers from other countries in the EU .

I hate those WBC International , IBF Inter-Continental etc titles . They are just a tool to get sanctioning fees and would serve no purpose if the orgs didn't inflate the rankings of the fighters that hold them .
