    • For his part: Ricardo Astuvilca is 21-0. He has two wins over opponents with winning records. Eleven of his opponents had no wins when he fought them. He fought one guy 4 times and three others 2 times each. He has five wins over opponents who were making their pro debuts and NONE of them ever fought again. And SHOCKINGLY, he is the former and first WBA Strawweight Gold champion!

      • Check out the record of Jesus Antonio Rubio. He beat one decent opponent in Sonny Fredrickson, but nobody else. Good to see the WBA is upholding their high standards. They’re just drawing names from a hat at this point.

      • Strawweight Gold-do they just make these up before the fights?
