Default Tony Conquest to fight for WBO Euro belt

against [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Is ****** going to no longer use the BBBoC? im pretty sure they dont sanction this belt. Will he actually be better off staging shows here under a luxembourg license? I thought, regardless of recent goings on with del boy etc, that we had one of the best boards/commisions in the world? would be sad if loads of fighters skipped the british title in favour of shite titles like this.

I saw a interview on Sky Sports website where Frank said he'd look into using the Luxembourg License again as it was a lot cheaper and better run according to him.

I heard it was Simmons/Conquest in October down London, or least that's what was offered a couple days ago

They sancton the WBA European Belt so in theory they should sanction it. The saddest thing is winning this belt gets u a decent ranking.

If Frank goes down the route of LBF, WBO Euro etc then I'm going to think about cancelling Boxnation. I can't forgive a re-run of the WBU years that helped to kill the domestic scene and our prospects being ready or stepping up to the next level.

Booth/Casey was for the vacant WBA European Belt.

It was a strange one because the WBA European title used to be called the WBA International title by the board because they didn't want to be seen sanctioning something which rivaled the EBU.

I think that was the EBA, but they split fromthe WBA recently so they introduced the WBA european.

Sorry if this is a silly statement or question, but am I right in thinking that Enzo is still the British champ but is banned until October? Then when given the green light to continue to box, he has to face McPhilbin? That being the case, is this not a good move for Tony to go for a version of a Euro title? afterall, if like Smoggy says that this offers a decent ranking,

Enzo gave it up so Shane is fighting JLD.

This will get a decent ranking, but it also devalues the EBU (although they've managed that on their own recently anyway...)
