I think your right at the top level , if you are a Eu champ or C'mmn Wlth or British or American champion you need a world title somewhere down the line for credibility , hence Mitchell looking at Katsidis instead of John Murray , Amir Khan looking past almost every fighter apart from the Fagan's and Earl's of the world , Hatton looking past Witter , Calzaghe Froch and so on !!!!!
I think if youve been a world champion and proven world class your bang on there is no requirement for a world Title to be on the line (DLH Pacquiao , Hatton Pacquiao (IBO aint a World Title) , Mayweather Marquez) , but if your looking to break into that " Box Office " status you need a strap at least 1 .
