    Complete BS
    I have no doubt that the WBA got paid good for this.

    He holds the WBA continental belt.

    Most organisations work on a points system in which fighters who fight for, win and defend minor WBA titles get points. You also get points for beating other WBA ranked opponents. You could say they have paid for this ranking through sanctioning fees.

    No different from Yarde being WBO number 1
    Rankings are BS anyway which is a shame
    WBC in particular

    Perhaps Conor Benn can be the new Anthony Yarde

    He can talk himself up as an elite world class fighter, and talk about facing the best, whilst facing complete third raters. There is clearly money to be made from that approach up to a certain point until people just switch off altogether as they are tired of the BS.

    Only difference is Yarde is actually decent. Benn is third rate!

    Yarde is alot better than Benn - can agree with that.

    As he is yet to face anyone in the worlds top 50 we dont know whether he is decent. He is where david price was before he stepped up against tony thompson

    I take your point but Yarde has alot more to him than Price ever did.

    he's not even at that level. Price was decent British level, even Euro level. Benn is area level currently.

    No he does not.

    Yarde hasn't even fought anyone in the top 50. Price has fought world level fighters several times and on occasion held his own. There's a big different between the two.

    What's interesting about this is that his ranking went up whilst he didn't even fight...
