A 45 and a 42 year old who have lately fought rubbish are
fighting for the WBC CW Silver belt. I had heard of the WBC Diamond belt but not the Silver. What's this bollox?

Its a belt for the sake of having 1....another joke/trinket.

Keeps you in the top 3 of the WBC's rankings & you pay a sanctioning fee.

When WBC fills Silver titles, it'll probably introduce Bronze

It's a magical title made from unicorn horns (which are a shade of silver so beautiful men weep to behold it even as its luster renders them blind for life).

It's said to be even more prestigious than the storied IBO...

Dragons have been known to scorch the countryside, leaving aside lesser plunder in search of a WBC silver belt to hoard along with the skeletons of fair princesses.

More money for them but they say its more opperunitys for boxers. it just dilutes the sport even more and is one cause of why the sport is in decline.

WBC apparently has 30 full-time staff. Oher than hanging around the office downing Coronas, I can't imagine what else they'd be doing

Some days depending who is promoting they may alternate the Corona's for Tecate's.
