It is, and I don't think it will be run corruptly. But historically, I don't think the likely perception would be that it's right. Imagine if Don Kind owned the WBC?

It hasnt been changed yet, but the point is it was, and would always be better, when it was totally impartial because of no connection to a "promoter".

It is the best belt out there. Fair, and with history. A fighter can only lose it in the ring or if he reties, and it takes a #1 vs a #2 or #3 to crown a new champion.
