If I accepted all the WBO fans' arguments I'd also have to count the IBO as a legit world title.
I thought the WBO was recognised in the USA, many south american countries, Asia and many EU countries.

Depends how you define recognised. The major American networks generally refrain from mentioning it.

Yes but do the various state governing bodies recognise it ?

They recognise the IBO ... NO ?

Did they not recognise it when Bhops and Tarver faced each other ?

Hopkins Tarver was for the IBO title. Lewis was IBO champion for his last few fights and Klitschko is IBO champion now.

Apparently Trinidad wont fight below 170lbs so i cant see that coming off as i reckon Pavlik will want to cement his place at 160 before going up again.

I think the Taylor rematch was already in the contract at 166 before the 1st fight even happened but i may be wrong.

As great as Trinidad was, he is a shadow of himself and is only fighting for .

I actually hate these catchweight fights and they seem to be becoming more common. If you cant make the weight then move up to the next division.

There is already enough weight classes as it is without needing catchweight fights.

[quote=Dunky McCafferty]Oh dear, not the usual WBO bashing going on again is it from people living in the past?
get over it folks, the WBO belt is classed as one of the 'big 4' by HBO, end of story.
Its recognised everywhere in the world as legit title apart from some stuffy brits who frequent this forum.
Get over yourselves, next you will be telling me that the IBF title is a 'bauble' cos it came after the WBC & WBA.

Its the 21st century, & still we have brits arguing that a title proudly held by many great fighters isnt legit... cos its not as old as the WBC

move with the times people, thats what I preach. is this anything to do with the fack that your scottish hero scott harrison was a former wbo champ? is this why your trying to justify this wbo trash and the title defences harrison made? estrada, kebbede, etc dunky your a jock trying to justify this? does it also have something to do with alex arthur featuring in the wbo?
