Froch, Bute and Dawson were all ranked within the WBO top ten when Calzaghe had the belt. In order to get title shots they all had to vacate their wbo position and pursue belts with other organizations

Well that's okay but the majority of time they are worthless fighters, and if a fighter is very worthy they will have the presion to make the mandatory.

WBO might be shit, but there are eqully appauling examples from the other alphabet boys. Recently Golovkin for the WBA. Earlier Norton and Holmes for the WBC. There's plenty of examples.

Bottom line: The alphabet boys are in business for money and not justice/fairness.
