  • Correcting the headings……”Three WBA belts are in play this weekend, out of the more than 200 availables”

  • Super champions are the top tier “real” WBA champions, not the obfusticating regular, gold, and interim pretenders. Charlo’s WBC middleweight title is dubious like the WBA “regular” titles. Canelo’s WBC franchise title is the real WBC belt.

    • Charlo is mentioned as super welter weight champion. Meaning junior middle weight. Canelo is supposedly full middle weight champ of the WBC. Charlo is a legitimate WBC title holder at junior middle weight. There’s a few pounds of difference. So I think you may be confused.
