Two boxing legends disagree about the increasing number of championships in the sport.

“The number of championships is never much in boxing, because every time a title match, two boxers go back to have money,” Mike Tyson said after returning to the ring, 15 years from the date of the announcement. hanging gloves. “No one is sure, what is enough in this sport. Think, in every weight class, you only have one champion, but there are 10 boxers who challenge. this number of opponents “.

The four main boxing organizations currently include the World Boxing Association (WBA), the World Boxing Council (WBC), the International Boxing Federation (IBF) and the World Boxing Organization (WBO). In addition to these four belts, boxers can also compete for two more belts of the International Boxing Organization (IBO) and The Ring – the most prestigious boxing magazine.

However, the two oldest and most prestigious boxing organizations, the WBA and the WBC, are not satisfied with having only one championship belt per weight class. They continue to split the “profit pie”. With WBA, this organization divided into two titles WBA Regular and WBA Super. With the WBC, they have the silver WBC belt, the world WBC, and once made a stir when creating another title, the franchise champion.

A martial artist, if reaching the top like Floyd Mayweather, is capable of acquiring all the titles. But “Solitude and defeat” is not satisfied with this. He once said: “It’s not okay to have too many champions. It reduces the significance of true champions, holding prestigious belts.”

When asked about the cause of the many championships, Mayweather said: “With every championship belt created, organizations ask the boxers to keep the title to pay a penalty. Keeping the title, they will lose this money and have the title stripped. This is not good at all, because the championship titles are as cheap as an amateur cup.

As the youngest world champion at the age of 20, Mike Tyson said that if there are few championships, the chances for the majority of boxers will be very limited. “There are people who don’t know when it’s the turn to challenge the championship, and there are people who only play one game all year to keep the title. That goes against the trend of commercialization of boxing, because every time there is a match. competition, everyone pocketed many million dollars “, he emphasized.
