Have you actually seen the current holders of WBU belts?

But on the basis that it's a world belt and the British belt is a domestic belt.

How many WBU fights took place between TWO British fighters?

It was an alternate 'British' title a lot of the time.

Last two WBU fights in UK were in Scotland featuring Lee McCallister facing another UK based fighter (in front 0o 600 people at the Beach Ballroom, Aberdeen)

I suppose you could call David Haye crazy, he spent 3 weeks bored in a jungle with Ashley Roberts and didn't rip the arse off it.

She's got a vile face. If you could guarantee that you only took her from behind, fair enough.

Vile's a bit harsh df? Not the prettiest bird in the world I agree but she has a cracking body and dirty eyes, she looks like she would suck your balls for a good 4 hours a day, all in all my type of girl.

And how many didn't? Either was it was a bigger fight than the British belt. It's a world belt (not a major one by any means) that will get you into world rankings.

A world belt (rather a big one or not) will put you in world rankings. A domestic belt wont. What's a better belt to win, the British belt or european? A world belt or a "world belt" is still bigger than a domestic or european belt.

You win a European title (EBU) you get a top 10 rating from the WBC and sometimes the WBA and IBF. You win a WBU title, any rating you had previously from WBC et al is lost...

What about Ricky Hatton? Never fought for a European belt but held the WBU for a few years and then got the IBF shot.
