    The WBA aren't really a genuine "world" sanctioning body.

    They're a Latin American tin-pot outfit representative of a handful of countries, not the world at large.

    Which is why I find it so odd that AJ has elected to defend against their "mandatory" rather than pursue legacy fights with Wilder or Fury.

    He would never have been stripped for taking the former fight anyway.

    So the WBA's heavyweight standings are:

    Super Champ - Joshua (to defend against Povetkin)

    Regular Champ - Manuel Charr (to defend against Oquendo)

    Interim Champ - The winner of Trevor Bryan & BJ Flores.

    That's a lot of sanctioning fees to collect. Good business I guess.

    Just don't take them too seriously as a legit sanctioning body.

    Next mandatory will be Gary Cornish if WBA stick to their current standards.

    They should strip Joshua and make this for full belt.

    Isn't Miller already mandatory to charr/oquendo? His fight against Adamek should be for the super interim title.

    At least Bryan beat Rossy fair and square over 10, something Stiverne couldn't pull off to eventually become Wilder's mandatory :sisi1

    Remember when the WBA said they would get rid of all their extra "world" titles? It just got worse

    Remember when they held that heavyweight elimination tournament and literally no one paid any notice of it?
