Pacquiao was The Ring World Champion at 140 lbs. He beat the man who beat the man. Let me explain, Pacquiao beat Hatton, who beat Tszyu who established himself as the Champion by beating the likes of Zab Judah who was undefeated, and Sharmba Mitchell twice who was at one time, the top contender.

Bullsh*t. There is no incentive for that as they do not charge any form of sanctioning fees.

No. The Ring champion was usually *the* world champion up until the late 80's when they stopped their championship policy. Nowadays their belt is just another shitty trinket.

it is not a world title as such but it means you are the best in the divison and so in a way is the best belt to have.

having said that, Calzaghe won the LHW ring belt, but did he really prove himself to be best in the divison?

manny has 6 world championship belts and 2 were won at catchweights and 1 was a vacant belt so he has 4 legit undeniable world titles i'll give him"5"since he defended the WBO which use to be a damn fringe title...........

It's not a world title, but it's the most legit.
I agree with you for the most part but in my mind if there ever was a real World title,it would be The Ring.
