    So if Wilder beats Fury the Lineal champion will be ducking the unified Champion. Just makes Wilder sound like an even bigger chicken than he already is.

    Lineal is another fake paper title.

    For crying out loud the WBA has 100, years of history.

    The #1-rated, undefeated heavyweight contender vs. the undefeated #2-rated heavyweight contender for the World Heavyweight Championship.

    The winner will be presented with the RING World Heavyweight Championship belt.

    Will Tyson Fury pick up his second RING championship, or will Deontay Wilder pick up his first.

    We'll find out in FIVE DAYS who joins this stellar list.

    Most of the World Heavyweight Champions over the past 100 years and their RING belts.

    Gene Tunney receives his RING Championship belt in 1926, while Dempsey displays his.

    There is absolutely nothing fake about the matchup on Saturday.

    The top two heavyweights in the world are fighting for the World Heavyweight Championship.

    Boxing history is being made on Saturday.

    Anyone who leaves Anthony Joshua out of a "World Championship" is not being serious.

    The guy is the UNIFIED CHAMP - with WBO, IBF, WBA.

    Sometimes I cannot believe what I'm reading when I look at this forum.

    Yes the match up itself is great, however lineal is just a paper title.

    The WBA has more history than lineal and is more prestigious than lineal.

    Sorry. You won't find the prestigious Manuel Charr, Trevor Bryan, Lucas Browne, Nicolay Valuev, John Ruiz, Ernie Terrell, Jimmy Ellis, John Tate, Bonecrusher Smith, Tony Tubbs and Bruce Seldon on any lineal World Heavyweight champion list.

    It's not paper. It's been awarded for 100 years. You can actually wear it.

    Lots of fighters have held belts while the world recognized one man as the world champion. Joshua will just remain alongside Dokes, Terrell, Page, Witherspoon and others like him.

    No you can't, Wilder will wear the green belt around his waist before and after the fight.
    Nothing else nothing more, this is a 1 belt fight.
