    Well, regional titles.

    They help develop a fighter by giving him motivation and benchmarks to shoot for as he climbs the ladder.

    Ultimately, fight-fans know who the Top Heavyweights in the world are.



    Thanks for the collection , dude.

    yeah, if you were a fighter, but not quite good enough to beat world rankers then why not collect one of them belts?

    after all, you could say you were the best fist fighter in all of canada, mediterranean, australia, the pacific etc etc.

    how many people can say that?

    It's not just that, but getting in with the WBC early and winning their regional titles might allow for higher rankings later on in your career.

    Someone should post all the BS mma titles out there so the TS will STFU. There's probably more titles in mma then boxing, like the bodog extreme cage rage title!

    Or we could not bash other combat sports and leave mma in the heavies?

    You're in the boxing forum, discuss boxing.

    Not how much you hate everything else.

    Many thanks for explaining to me what I was trying to do. I'm afraid your logic is flawed though dummy, if i wanted to encourage boxing hate, surely I'd have posted it in the heavies?
    With dogshit posts like this, thank fuck you've almost given up!

    Come on, don't fly off the handle. I think that most MMA fans and boxing fans would agree that having an undisputed World Heavyweight Champion in their respective sports would be nice.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^





    1 title for 1 division + fewer divisions = boxing will rise again





    One of the reasons that boxing used to be on prime time television was because the word champion meant something more than it means now.. it meant king.. it meant the last man standing.. it meant a unique path to validation..

    now we have so many chumps calling themselves champ, and avoiding each other like the plague because they have to follow a unique path to be validated as a champ.. they can pick one of 4-5 paths per division...

    I'm of the opinion that it used to be on primetime television(in the U.S.) because the Heavyweight Champ was American. Unfortunately, the U.S. doesn't have the boxing talent pool it used to because the NFL and NBA pull in almost every great athlete that weighs over 200lbs and is 6'0" or taller.

    I don't have any issues with regional or national titles. But there's definitely too many people reffered to as 'world champion'.

    It's even more rediculous when they start having 'super champions' and regular champions, and interim champions even though the regular champion is fine and still defending the true belt.

    Here's a great article about some of the crap the WBA pulls with it's titles

    From the article linked above

    Despite having opportunities to completely rework its rules, the current WBA may do more to muddy the waters than any other organization, which is exactly the opposite of its original purpose. Rather than having only one championship, the WBA often claims to have as many as four:

    * Super champion: The WBA claims, per its rules, that only a unified titlist or a person who makes five to ten defenses of their title can become super champion. However, it's added circumstances as it sees fit, and even the rule that it can elevate a champion after only five defenses is a new addition. If a WBA regular champion also becomes a WBC, IBF or WBO champion, then he's elevated to super champion. It's a win-win for the WBA - they give super champions longer times to make mandatory defenses, so they don't look bad for stripping fighters, and it also allows the WBA to make a grab for more cash by having twice as many "title" fights.
    * Regular champion: You know, the guy who's actually the titlist. Except when there's a super champion. Then, the regular champion is something less than a champion. He can still strut around calling himself the man, but in reality, if there's a super champion, then the regular champion isn't even the champion for his own sanctioning body.
    * Interim champion: Officially, under the WBA rules, the only way you can have an interim champion is if there's a champion in recess, e.g. the titlist can't defend because he's injured or there are some other extenuating circumstances. In reality, there are currently six interim titlists, and all of the real champs are perfectly able to fight. The WBA gets more sanctioning fees from having an interim title fight instead of a title eliminator, so as a way to steal more money, they have slowly been replacing title eliminators with fights for an interim title.
    * Champion in Recess: According to the WBA rules, when an active champion is unable to defend his title within the prescribed time period for debilitating medical reasons, legal reasons or any other legitimate reason, the WBA can make him champion in recess and appoint an interim titlist. Good example: Ruslan Chagaev was unable to fight because of hepatitis, so he was made champion in recess. Not so good example: Felix Sturm is caught in a legal battle over his contract, so the WBA made him super champion instead of champion in recess.
