Post Comments Thread For: From The Fringe: Exploring The World Boxing Federation

By Lyle Fitzsimmons - For whatever reason, I like life on the fringe.

When I was a kid hockey fan in Niagara Falls, the first thing I did with my preseason yearbook each fall was flip to the back to find the few pages devoted to the WHA.

As the USFL made its grand televised entrance a decade or so later, I was among the few early-80s football followers who could name as many New Jersey Generals as New York Jets.

I’m sure I still have some ABA basketball cards in a drawer somewhere, and, if there’s ever a viable anti-establishment alternative to Major League Baseball, you can pretty much count me in.

The mindset carries over to boxing as well.

As those who’ve read this space for years can attest, there’s no louder trumpet for the merits of lesser-heralded sanctioning bodies than mine. And while many lazily proffer an “all alphabets are bad” mindset before hopping into bed with a self-appointed magazine savior, my preference has long been to deconstruct the existing façade and put up a building that works well for everybody.

If I'm honest, I actually prefer the WBF and IBO bodies over all the others.

The IBO ranking system is cool IMO.

Guess I like them because they are the underdogs.

If the WBF ever succeeds in establishing itself as a competitor to the other major sanctionning bodies, their great ideal of one belt one champion will go out the window, they will do like the others, and that is multiplicate their titles to multiplicate their income.
