Inactive Boxers Are Killing The Sport Of Boxing
fighters need to stay busy to build up the sport and generate enough action to get more viewers and expand it's fan base. fans want to see fights where elite boxers face off in the ring. that said, so called champions should defend their belt at least every 3-4 months because most champions get in the ring nowadays once or twice per year, that's not good enough. it's creates a vacuum that is then filled by untested (unworthy) fighters, belts are just handed down to the next guy like a pair of 2nd hand shoes.
this needs to change and those sanctioning bodies should stops with that favoritism crap and start enforcing their own rules, which is to defend the belt every 3-4 months.
i'm not mentioning names here but everyone knows who those inactive boxers are.
