The people in charge of boxing are about MONEY. Always has been that way and always will be.

Why would they give a ***** if Ali verbally attacked them, as long as they were getting paid? They've been verbally attacked for the longest time. So Ali is attacking them? Are people gonna stop going to their fights? Would people say, "hey, I don't like this bout because Ali doesn't like the organizations"? No, people want to watch boxing regardless. The belts just add a little promotion, especially for casual fans.

Ali fought damn near all of his career with two belts out there.

If he was more powerful than the organizations, he wouldn't have gotten stripped. And then the Spinks rematch would've been for TWO belts, not one.

The biggest power Ali had post-career was the Muhammad Ali Reform Act, which from what I hear, promoters find their way around regardless.
