Default Re: A classic view of the ring belt

[quote=McGrain;5598580]It's attractive because it's devoid of politics to a degree the others can't match. Not entirely, but the machinations of a body like the WBC is basically incomparable. Corrupt doesn't being to cover it.

Whatever the reality, though, the fact that the system used to decide the champion is now owned by one of the world's biggest promoters does hurt it.[/quote]

This, and the WBC is considered the most credible of the horrible three. The Ring belt now is tarnished with ODLH owning it, but still fight fans are getting smart enough to realize belts are meaningless anyway in terms of making a great fight. Does anyone really care if a belt is on the line for the Pac Mayweather fight?
