    I don't like this one because the holder pretends to be the actual champ, you call it the Silver belt or the Interim belt everyone knows it's secondary.

    It creates degrees of freedom when they want to do something scandalous, same with the WBC franchise belt. Tank and Teo both just fought for the WBA championship, just not with each other. Meanwhile the franchise belt was supposed to be a non-transferrable designation but then it was just won in a fight while the "actual" WBC belt was won via email.

    It has never had any legitimacy.

    It reminds me of wrasslin' when they used to have the "world television title," but never explained that that meant and it would always be held by a little guy with a beer gut.

    Manuel Charr, I'm looking at you.

    all the belts are tainted because none of them are there for the greater good of boxing.
    can't have one champ (and therefore one COVETED belt per division) as things stand.

    Charr is very well rested. In a fight against Joshua you have to ask yourself which is more more well rested fighter?

    Obviously it's Charr. So you'd put him ahead on this logic. Therefore, the regular beltholder is superior to the superbeltholder.

    BTW ... Bryan is unbeaten ... so he'd be ahead of Joshua and Fury too.

    Sir since you are an expert on this, I always wondered are pimps cucks? Are pimps a mercenary subgroup of the Cuck culture? or are cucks a social-mercenary subgroup of the Pimp culture?

    Will a GGG fan allow his idol to spend time with their primary lover. Fake cucks/pimps talk the talk, but get mad when access is demanded

    So @Mendoza @BCS8.... facts are in.

    GGG has nine title defences not twenty, by consensus.

    Belts mean nothing. The opponent is the only thing. A universally viewed lineal champion is an exception but even then it is not a physical belt so who cares... Judge each fight as its own.

    Regardless of whatever way anyone sees it (demotion, reform or whatever), there can only be one legitimate belt per sanctioning body.

    The WBA (regular) is clearly not a world title. If that were the case, the second string belts of all sanctioning bodies would need to be referred to as world titles (perhaps with an adjustment in their title).

    There are countless examples, but who really considers Manuel Charr a heavyweight world champion? Why is the WBA (regular) not required in becoming the undisputed world heavyweight champion? It's because it's bogus, but if you are a big enough name, it may serve as a stepping stone and/or assist in the marketing of a fight to those who don't know any better.

    No one here could win it. Id rate it extremely difficult to win. Guys here not rating it remind me of a young guy i work with calling certain professional sportsmen average during our sporty chit chats. Hes got a 15 sec 100m and a 60 kg bench.

    "Gennady Golovkin scored his 38th victory and 34th via knockout over Vanes Martirosyan at the 1:53 mark of the second round to win his historic 20th title defense – tying him with Bernard Hopkins for the most in middleweight history."
