    Was Kermit Cintron ever a beltholder?

    Jorge Vaca, who was undisputed Welter Champion in 1987, was pretty ordinary. He won the Title on a technical decision over Lloyd Honeyghan then lost it straight back in the rematch.
    There was also Spain's Perico Fernandez who was WBC Light Welter Champ in the 70's. Capable but no great shakes.

    Excluding the WBA regular title, I'm thinking Charles Martin. He is a decent southpaw but it's embarrasing to think that David Tua can't call himself a world champion and Martin can. Luis Santana is up there too, might be the worse.

    Also the WBO has put some awful title fights, there's a timeline where Joet González is a world champion.

    This is my opinion (can be wrong though)...

    1. Ryol Li Lee (Retsuri Lee)
    Not really a special boxer. Not fast, not strong, just smart enough. Doesn't knock a lot of people. He got lucky to be offered for world title fight against against the dangerous Poornsawan Kratingdaenggym and he won against the Thai who was probably in his worst performance in years. Four months later, the guy is dethroned by another mediocre Japanese boxer. Never make any impact again ever since. He is probably the first North Korean descent who become world champion

    He had to be better than Vivian Harris because he pummeled and KOED Harris for the title.

    I've always had a bone to pick with Red Cochrane.

    Maybe its time to let go?

    Exactly so DA should not be referenced in this thread negatively.

    Just look at the Light Welterweight divisions list of (pass the parrcel) champions over the last 15 years and you'll see many very poor boxers.

    Amir Khan, Souleymayne M'baye, Gavin Rees, Carlos Cuenca, Andreas Kotelnik, Julius Indogno, Devon Alexander, Paulie Malignaggi, Chris Algieri, Junior Witter, Kendall Holt, Lovemore Ndou, Lamont Peterson, Jessie Vargas...

    It´s a worthless division. The top dogs always end up mingling with the welterweights, so it´s pretty much a waste of time.
    As are all of the filled divisions.

    168 is a massive waste of time.
