The WBA's pursuit of a sanctioning fee seems to be spiralling out of control. On the back of its bizarre decision to recognise two interim 160lbs champs within a fortnight and claim 43 'world champions' on its website (unable to keep pace with its belt distribution the sanctioning body overlooked Luis Ortiz and Alfonso Blanco) - is it time to derecognise the WBA? Even SkyBet now refuses to take bets on a fighter winning a WBA 'world' title due to the organisation’s farcical number of ‘world champions’. The sanctioning body subsequently added insult to injury by demoting 'WBA Super' 122lbs champ Gulliermo Rigondeaux for inactivity while still recognising Andre Ward who has not defended his 168lbs belt in two years (in which time Rigondeaux defended three times). Last week 95% of those polled by BM agreed it was time to ‘stop the madness’ and derecognise the WBA. Now Boxing Monthly's online team give their verdict in this week's 'Big Question’.
