I just hope they don't make anymore of these belts major titles. IMO 1 or 2 was enough, because even with 2, fighters seemed more willing to unify. Everyone was telling Joe Frazier he wasn't really heavyweight champion until he beats Ali and Frazier was willing and went out and did it. So many fighters now are content to have just their one alphabet belt.

The business of boxing has changed dramatically since the Ali/Frazier era.

Yeah and it sucks ass IMO. Too many cherry pickers like Mayweather and not enough fight anyone warriors like Cotto. Heard an American heavyweight prospect is fighting on HBO next week. Think this guy is any good? I'll find out after I see the fight.
