  • Is There Ever Any Way That We Can Get Rid Of Sanctioning Bodies?

    Please. I want the fu#king sport to resemble an actual sport like the good ‘ol fashion days.

    The good old fashion ways have been long gone for a while, but I get what you mean. Even though I was not alive during the 1 belt per weight class era, I can still want that era back because of its simplicity. I guess there’s too much greed in boxing to go back to such an era. You have media ignoring some belts like IBO and NABO but they can’t do the same to WBC, WBO, WBA, IBF. Just recognize The Ring champ and call it a day.

      My solution is: Unless you are crapping on them, don't mention them, and see what happens. Don't acknowledge their champions, unless you agree with them that that guy or girl is the real champ, case by case. Don't be selective either. Don't say a good thing about one and say something different about another. They are all crooked and shameless. I personally don't recognize any of them.

      To me, all the 'real' champs in boxing are disputable. Most divisions really have no clear champ, or a weak one.

        A division where someone like Josh Taylor has 4 belts is laughable. It screams bumcity. There's nothing remarkable about his boxing skills or anything special that he does in the ring. Crude, flailing caveman. Katie Taylor is way more skilled and charismatic than that POS.

            They fight for something not directly given out by the sport (IE, an impartial entity), boxers will like to fight for ''something''. By winning a trinket, it let's the sport know who is the top dog. ''Peoples'' Champ could mean many champs.

              Not as laughable as having Tank fight for a "world title" belt one month after Taylor became undisputed. Admittedly there is a certain level of ******ation in having 4/5 sanctioning bodies claiming world titles, having multiple "world titles" for a single body makes absolutely zero sense.

              Just removing "world" from these titles would be an improvement, you're the WBC champion, fair enough, become undisputed, then you're a world champion.

              Realistically its tough, they aren't going to voluntarily put themselves out of business, try and make a sanctioning body to rule them all and now you just have 6 instead of 5.

              One possible path I could see it happening is if the US got a unified national commission, similar to BBBoC, then joined with BBBoC etc and formed an international association like AIBA for pros with their own rankings and mandos etc. Absolutely no incentive for most stakeholders to make this happen though.

              If it were to happen it would probably be a result of a single promoter/network basically becoming a monopoly and ending up with a UFC model, the ufc belt isn't the only one, but its the only one most people care about.

                Technically Davis is the WBA champion at 140. A champion has mandatories. That's Davis. Taylor's belt is actually meaningless, unless Davis enforces his position to fight him. The super is like the franchise, with the exception that someone like Haney can't enforce it. Franchise has no mandatory. I don't think Davis will fight any mandatories unless it's at least a semi-name or someone he wants to fight, like Taylor. Not for his belts either.

                I'll be back after I'm finished puking.

                  As long as prospects are eager to become champion ASAP these sanctioning bodies will be around

                  these guys don’t care about beating the REAL champ for the title

                  being declared a champ is life changing for a prospect

                  multiple sanctioning bodies makes it easy to become a champ

                    Is the bold really a good thing? Fans like me will also keep crapping on those boxers and their trinkets. Not real champs.
