Default Southern Area becomes English then Commonwealth

I was hoping BJ Saunders would pick up the English belt before moving to Commonwealth.

It does undermine the quality of the belt when the same opponent can be upgraded twice for the same fight.

It's not a proper Commonwealth title fight unless it involves a TTG.

You look at fights that are made at commonwealth level, and you'll realise there's not much distance between English and commonwealth level fighters...look at some of the ducks broadhurst fought for the commonwealth. It's not really an upgrade just a different trinket

Baaastard where does the prestigious Masters titles fit in? Our Lee had two of those (at two weights) but he never got a sniff at a Commonwealth title.

Baaastard, Wakey is a happening place now with the Hepworth Gallery and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park it's attracting a bohemian/arty populace, is that you?

Anyway as well as our conservatory we've got all or Lee's trophies on display, both his Central Area belts (well copies he had made) and a life size print of him in a black suit jacket (no shirt) with one of his Masters belts (both lost in first defence) on the wall, it's sickening.

The most recent rankings I could find were November 2010

Baaastard, you didn't fancy Lupset or Flanshaw then?

'Good career' zero stoppages, eleven inside distance defeats, thank feck he's retired it's put years on me seeing him chinned so many times, and he won't feckin leave home.
