Froch doesn't need the belt but you know that whoever they give it to will start claiming to be on his level. And some fans will support it and claim Stevenson or Oosthuizen is the best in the weight class and is being ducked and that the division hasn't truly been cleaned out until they fight him etc.
That's what irks me. By Froch keeping the belt it keeps those guys out of the picture until one man can unify.
