Wouldn't the 0 on your record mean more then ? If you we're the only one with a belt in your div. and were constantly fighting number 1 contenders and somehow remained undefeated

Nope. That would give a monopoly to one authorising body. There should be two. That way we still keep the excitement of unification bouts for crowning the undisputed champion.

I think this is made too much of to be honest. A) If we had one champion, there are too many pro contenders and some of them wouldn't get a shot by the time they retire. B) We don't call Povetkin a champion, he is a title holder. Boxing knows who the real men of the division are.

Awesome post. One title is too little. Two is ideal - not enough to water down the significance of a belt. One champion could mean that he could in essence monopolize the belt. And throw the RING belt somewhere in there too.

Well obviously. Boxing has had at least 2 recognized titles since the 1920s, although for the first few decades they usually (not always) had one guy with both titles.

4+ titles can help the high-risk/low-reward fighters, there's more titles available and they can use the title as a marketing tool, but as a whole they stink.

In the ideal world, yes, but it will never happen because the status quo suits the sanctioning bodies and the promoters and tv companies down to the ground. It makes them money and thats all that matters, sadly.

makes sense, but two titles would still mean one is higher than the other, which means there is only one
