      Mauricio doesn't like being asked tough questions.

      Props to that interviewer for having the guts to press him on several issues.

        A title you don't have to defend? Nah, it's BS.

            Can't blame him. The WBC should have just given him his shot.

              The WBC does not dictate what belts the other three major bodies recognize. The Franchise is not recognized by the WBA, IBF, or WBO. The WBC title is, Haney is the WBC champion that is recognized by the other bodies. Which is why only the WBC president is claiming undisputed for Teo. As far as the other bodies are concerned Teo is the unified WBA-IBF-WBO champion in dispute with the WBC champion Haney. Look at their ranking boards. Recognized champions are right there.

                He didn’t really clarify

                He said Teofimo is undisputed but also Haney is WBC which doesn’t really make sense.

                Was good to see the interviewer ask if it’s the same as WBA Super, which in all honesty that’s basically what the franchise champion is.

                Either way, regardless, Devin Haney isn’t a legitimate world Champion that I do know.

                  Sorry to do this to you, guy.

                  “They (Loma or Teo) CAN fight the champion,” said Sulaiman when told that the #1, Devin Haney, can’t fight the champion Lomachenko. “Haney is the champion of the WBC. He won the title against [Zaur] Abdullaev."
                  Here's the problem.

                  There's a simple definition of "Franchise" - it was created (at least for WBC) to enable fighters to not have to fight mandatories in the thought that they would fight top opponents. That was the thought process.

                  But the Franchise, by Sulaiman's own words, was never to be "lost" from fighting.

                  What changed, and what's confusing you, is that Sulaiman got backed into a corner when Loma didn't show up. His plan all along was for Loma to just fight whoever, beat whoever, and be marketed as the next P4P.

                  Teo getting his hand raised threw a wrench in the plans, because Teo's dad lobbied to have Franchise be on the line as a condition for the fight.

                  WBC couldn't back down because it was a big money fight and they got greedy. They got burned. Now they're backtracking.

                  But out of that same Sulaiman's mouf, bro, in bold, above. Just so you understand where that man stood BEFORE Teo/Loma, and him flip-flopping means Haney has every right to sue the hell out of them (he won't, but he should) or pull a Riddick Bowe and boycott it (he won't, but he should).
