Biden's fault. Or Trump's.
Fair point, but all those fighters are unified champions, so even if WBA belt was ignored, they would still be recognized as champions with or without the belt. But I take your point that it can be the fighter that gives prestige to the belt.
Everyone - commentators, boxers and fans alike - need to stop legitimising the regular belt as a world title when it is just a meaningless bauble to earn WBA more santionioning fees.
Well i think the fans part is already there
Ok but the guys in the last who are actually the top guys in their division like teo and nelo have unified titles
The WBA will stay in the mix if the big dogs agree to keep paying sanctioning fees.
One title on its own doesn't mean much whether it's the BC, BA, BO or BF. I don't see the point of publishing an article stating you refuse to acknowledge one completely
If this were the new norm then Spence would currently be undisputed at 147.
Good for them, I guess? No sanctioning body is perfect, all of them have their flaws, but I'm not just going to disregard their champions and titles.
How does that work?
Undisputed would kind of suggest having beaten the other guys with a claim to the throne, and even if you ignore the WBO, most people would expect the undisputed champion to hold the Ring belt through beating the number 2 guy at some point.
It doesn't work becausd I overlooked your points like an idiot. My begrudging gratitude for the correction.
Edit: For some reason I thought Spence had 3 titles. I must've stupidly counted Crawfords title as one for Spence.
Ah, fair enough. To be fair to you, the PBC trying their best not to recognize Crawford as a champion has confused matters.
WBC, WBO, IBF & other parties also share an interest in liquidating the WBA, so we can expect clandestine support for Fres Oquendo to end this conflict in his favor. Its obvious at this point Fres Oquendo is not going anywhere, if anything happens to Fres Oquendo the WBA will be held responsible and liquidated in Fres Oquendo death or life. At this point the foot of Fres Oquendo is firmly pressed on their throats and he is giving them breathers to hear them make the date for his title fight.
The best move the embattled-narcissists in the WBA can do, is to jump ship & join Fres Oquendo. An immediate title shot at heavyweight will be great with Fres Oquendo as the A-side in every aspect. another option is launching the Bridger division & making Fres Oquendo the first Bridger super world champion.
