Default IBU title belt. Another black eye for boxing.

I think I may have found the worst, most corrupt sanctioning body yet. The IBU.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - Check out these quotes:

title!

Jump start your future now ( In Boxing ). Are you Ready?

They are offering you a title fight, You don't offer a goddamn title fight!!! The look of this, yet another stupid sanctioning body isn't good.

Why do I bring this up now? Simple, James Toney beat no-namer Gunn for the title earlier this year, which was a disgrace itself. But now they have managed to go another step down, 45 year old Rick Camlin, Fought twice in the last seven years is getting a title shot. This Saturday I saw due to piles of advertising for a Ustream of it on Boxrec.

Camlin is a low-level club fighter. On a comeback after two KO losses to Galen Brown and Scott Pamberton in 04'. He beat 0-2 Damen Reed and 5-3 Chris Venola early this year by stoppage.

That gets him a " title fight " by the cons at the IBU's standards yes it does. Which is horrible for a great sport like boxing.

It just doesn't have the lucrative appeal of the UBF title.

Sadly after looking it up and finding it is real, I can agree.

Does James Toney have one of the IBU belts?

And what's UBF?

The GBO is the only title that matters.

Who wouldn't want this beautiful belt, as advertised on this professional website-

Looking through the IBU's rankings, they have all the lower level fringe world contenders ranked first and second in the hope someone will call for a title shot

^ The World Boxing Board. Haven't heard of them since honestly.


WBF Celtic title. This one is kinda cool looking and I like the concept behind it.
