  • 100% agree with Oscar about titles in boxing. There are too many “champions” “super champions” and super duper champions” in boxing which causes confusion. No champion should be exempt from fighting the next best fighter. On the other hand, Oscar is a promoter so he may sing a different song if his fighters had all of these perks.

      • It depends on the circumstances. If a boxer like Spence is trying to change his entire style for a rematch with Crawford he needs to fight an “Uber driver-boxer” tune-up first to build up his confidence and understand how his new tricks work in an actual fight versus trying them out on a monster like Crawford.

        • His style will be hard to change

          Now a boxer can’t be fighting back to back for a world title

          So in order to don’t get rust he pick up a ta I driver then go for the championship fight
