  • Comments Thread For: Eddie Hearn: WBC Franchise Champions Are Bad For Boxing

    Eddie Hearn promotes a handful of WBC champions, but he's not promoting the idea of further complicating boxing's beltholder picture by way of the WBC Franchise Champion. The WBC introduced the Franchise Champion last year and has since bestowed the title on Canelo Alvarez at middleweight and Vasiliy Lomachenko at lightweight.

      The franchise title is lame and shouldn't exist, but, there is a difference in the scenerios that Hearn is mentioning. I believe if you are a champion in a division and you're going to unify with another champion in that same division, that should take precedent. I hate not being able to get 1 champion in a division because these organizations get into each other's way. But if you're given a franchise title deliberately so that you can avoid a mandatory and instead hop around different weight classes and pick and choose who you want to fight while still maintaining a title in a division you haven't fought in for several fights, that's straight BS and favoritism, which is what the wbc is known for.

        The first situation isnít the case though. The WBC franchise title isnít a championship, it canít be unified etc. Itís why Loma/Lopez is no longer for the Undisputed championship, as Loma is no longer the WBC world champion

        That would be like the Super WBA title, but they are totally different things

          Yes very true, but I still think you Eddie Hearn are even worst for boxing!

          Anyways, the way these young cats are using social media to promote themselves may put an end to the scam promoter's have had going for so long.

          Promoters will be reacting like cable companies did to Netflix years ago and it will be just as funny to watch!

            that's why I started hy saying the franchise title is lame and shouldn't exist. My point is that organizations should make unification a priority over their mandatory. So if Loma is going to unify with Lopez or fury is going to unify with Joshua, they should risk having their titles stripped for trying to unify their division. Now if you wanna hop to another weight class and not face your mandatory, that is cause for being stripped.

              I have to agree with Hearn here.The less belts in these overcrowded governing bodies the better , silver belts, inter continental belts , diamond belts and although we don't like a lot of the mano's good hard working and deserving fighters like Whyte would be swerved forever.At the moment this doesn't suit Hearn I just hope his feelings will be the same should the shoe be on the other foot.

                    I guess Hearn's champion, AJ, has been fighting his ordered mando's without complaining. Beside, Hearn has made it clear that he wasn't happy about the manner one of his boxer, Haney, became WBC champion.

                    While I would love to see divisions unified, I do believe that the right thing to do, is to force champions to also entertain their mandotary obligations. It's a matter of adjusting their schedule.

                    They themselves are beneficiary of the mandotary system, so they must offer others the same opportunity to become a champion. If you are confident that you are the best you take the challenge without hasitation. Just a decade or 2 ago champions used to fight at least 4 times per year, including mandotaries and unification bouts.
