Default WBO was considered a 2nd tier title until 2004

here is the reason why...

From its inception in 1988 until Bernard Hopkins' victory over Oscar De La Hoya in 2004, the WBO did not allow its champions to hold the title of the three "major" sanctioning bodies, the IBF, WBA, or WBC. Up until that time, it was considered a second-tier world title and most boxers opted to fight for the more established titles.

The WBO sanctioned a fight between two relatively unknown fighters, Francesco Damiani (winner of the super heavyweight silver medal at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles) and Johnny DuPlooy, to determine the initial holder of its heavyweight title in 1989. All other sanctioning bodies of boxing recognized, the then undefeated, Mike Tyson as the heavyweight champion. Damiani went on to win the initial WBO heavyweight title.

all you doubters can google it...i was wrong about the ranking it gave you though as i said it gave you a top 10 in WBC when actually it was the european title not the WBO title. it was just another stepping stone belt to one of the big 3 nonetheless...
