Default The WBC/WBA middleweight title

Can anyone explain what actually happened with this title re Martinez/Chavez?

And what happens when Sergio wins? Unified WBC champ?

I'm serious, I know the WBC are pathetic but what happened and what will happen?

Also with the WBA:

They've ordered GGG (regular) and Geale (super champ) to fight. What if Geale refuses and is stripped? Does GGG become Super Champ, what is the criteria of a super champ, will they count the IBO title and say he is unified?

My head hurts.

The crap the WBA/C pulled will give these kinds of confusion.

Geale's manager said he won't duck Golovkin by the way.

As far as I'm concerned their is only one MW champ and that is Martinez. His belt was taken off him thru politics and gifted to Chavez.

Jose Sillyman wanted a Mexican to be Champ, and Bob Arum wanted his cash cow to have a paper title to make more $$$. So they came up with some bullshit reason to strip Sergio, so Chavez could fight for the belt, and gave him a dodgy decision over Zbik. Thus they could make more money sanctioning Chavez's belts due to his fanbase, and Bob would make more money because Jr had a title, so that would sell more tickets in bigger venues.

Hope that makes sense
