    Calzaghe - WBO champ
    Enzo - WBO champ
    Arthur - fighting for WBO
    Cook - fighting for WBO
    Hobson, Earl, Enzo etc all fought for the WBO after being WBU champ
    Hatton - was supposed to fight for the WBO while WBU champ

    The facts speak for themself.

    It depends who their champion is

    People defend the WBO when it suits them

    i think it is still 2nd division when compared to BC, BA and BF

    I've always thought that Warren has some dodgy dealings with the WBO. It's not just the world titles, it the intercontinental titles which always seem to be gifted to Warren fighters.

    Of course not , Khan has quality wins over Lazlo Komjathi , Colin Bain , Ryan Barrett , Rachid Drilzane , Mohammed Medjadji and who could forget the masterclass against Steffy Bull . Infact it's amazing Khan isn't ranked higher...........

    When fighters can consistently be fighting for the WBU title and then suddenly get a shot at WBO titles you know something is fishy.

    The fight Earl and Hobson had before being assured WBO title shots are ridiculous.

    the wbo is not doing itself any favours.

    it has had some good genuine champs like Freitas and now Diaz in the lightweight division, and then they have to go do something ridiculous like this. i believe kevin mitchell is ranked 7th in the superfeatherweight as well...just 2 places below arthur and 1 place below Humberto Soto
