Definitely. I don't think anyone can dispute the fact, would end up in a lot less ducking.

LOL, first of all boxing is extremely broken.
Secondly more belts makes it less intresting, because instead of real champions we have a ****load of pretenders.

Less belts means that you would actually have to earn a title and work even harder to keep it.

Things are the way they are for a reason, boxing has evolved to this point. Because thats the way things work.

People complain about boxing and if they don't like it they can watch another sport. People like to complain though. If people had nothing to complain about and there were no robberies and corruption they would be miserable.

You're right. The reason is so the media manufacture paper champions by allowing them to win titles against nobodies. Do you actually think Bute or Chavez Jr. would've been champions if there was only 1 belt per division?

One of the biggest problems we have in boxing is fighters avoiding challenging fights. This is directly because of the surplus of belts we now have. Less belts = less ducking.

Lastly many people who have been watching this sport longer than either of us would say that boxing has devolved, not evolved.
