Boooooo. And why does a fighter have to pay to challenge for or defend a title for one of these corrupt governing bodies? Was that always a thing?

True...
I'm a bit anxious about seeing more and more fighters challanging for regional IBO belts.. and settling for defending IBO "championship" against fringe contenders rather than taking on challange of becoming title-holder within 4 legit, recognised governing bodies.

Nothing good will come out of it - it's just few people creating business and using boxing to make money for themselves.

That dude who is in charge of IBO was also part of WBO organistation when it was starting, I believe... So I guess that's his way of making a living...

TBRB should be the future, since Ring lost some legitimacy when Golden Boy Promotions took control of the magazine. Although, the prominent ones at heavy, light heavy, don't seem to be undeserving. Probably also middle, light and welter, but I don't watch enough boxing these days to know 100%, which is why I often defer to the historians on here.

What's odd, are the sanctioning bodies are listed as "non profits."

Not sure if it's the exact reason, but back then if you held a belt other organizations wouldn't rank you. That could hurt your earning potential for a guy that's not a draw.

It was for the very simple reason of making more money. You see, when Mercer won the title and then beat Morrison, the WBO still meant nothing. It was later in the decade when the belt started to hold some legitimacy. During Mercer's run, Moorer was made mandatory challenger by the WBO and yet, Mercer was in a position to line up a fight with Holmes (big money, supposedly no risk) and then fight top dog Holyfield.

So, rather then pay step aside money or fight a mandatory, he just gave up the title for his hopes of fighting for the real championship. In the end, Holmes somehow beat him and that w as that.
