In Canelo's case, he really doesn't need multiple or any belts to be an attraction. I'd rather see him fight a guy like Callum Smith anyway @ 168, that could be a very good & tough fight for Canelo.



Smith is big/long & can both box & punch.

Gee. An ABC outfit stripping a title from a fighter for no apparent reason. Hard to believe, eh.

Imagine that. Tsk tsk. I, for one, am shocked. Shocked I say!

Well, I have a spare championship belt here he can have. It's made of paper but it looks nice.

As I've said elsewhere, I have not followed boxing for the last couple years. But tonight I turned on the t.v. to watch Arreola v Kownacki, and happened to see the end of Pascal v Brown.

Pascal won something called the "WBA interim light heavyweight championship."

What the bleep is an "interim" championship?

Nothing has changed...

It's the WBA wanting to have more than 1 champ so they can get more $.

If you have not followed boxing for the last couple of years you picked a good night to tune in, that was a pretty good/exciting card last night. Not one boring clinch fest in all 3 fights they showed.

Yes. But watching all that jiggling flesh during Arreola v Kownacki, I couldn't help but think "We've come a long way from the magnificently chiseled specimen that was Mike Tyson at his peak."

Step forward step forward step forward hands up head bobbing left right left then cross cross cross UPPERCUT UPPERCUT!!!! And KO number 5,462 for Iron Mike...

True, I was wondering about how fit they appeared - hard to believe they could throw as many punches as they did for that long. Adam admits his lack of fitness cost him a chance to fight AJ - instead of Ruiz.

Sorry, youngsters, but watching those two mugs pummelling each other made me think, back in the day they would have been, at best, prelim fighters or 'opponents' for guys like Scott Ledoux, Pinklon Thomas or Carl "The Truth" Williams, fodder to pad their records. I caught most of the Pascal V Brown slug-fest. Lots of action but no threats to guys like Marvin Johnson or a prime Bernard Hopkins.

I'm not THAT young!

It's a real pity that the alphabet organizations are still around. What's wrong with accepting Ring Magazine's definition of a champion? Why can't the broadcasters and boxers settle on one single championship mechanism? These are rhetorical questions of course.

I remember a few years back, reading about "interim" champions and "super" champions and "gold" and "silver" champions... It reminds me of the later Roman Empire, when emperors kept mixing in other metals with gold and silver, so much that Roman coinage declined sharply in value.

Years ago when George Foreman still called fights on HBO, Jim & Larry were also complaining about too many champs & George said the networks want to show some sort of title fight to attract viewers. I think Jim replied & George said back - "Well we're showing this one aren't we?"
