Good. Estrada's been holding up the division for ages now.


becausekiwii

He has. It still boggles my mind they stripped Estrada and manny but Leo could hold onto it for longer than both with no penalty


RRR04_

Al Haymon has some special love for Santa Cruz. He did name his son or his dog after him after all. Must be pulling hella strings for him like a son of his own.


DengusMcFlengus

Holy shit is this for real? I had no idea why Leo Santa Cruz has gotten away without defending his title for so long. Didn't know he had any kind of close relationship with Haymon


RRR04_

I'm kinda guessing that tbh, but I do know for a fact that Cruz named either his son or his dog after Al Haymon, so that would imply they have a special relationship of some form.

Rmccarton

It was his son. I wonder if Haymon would take someone naming their dog after him as a compliment, lol.

The PBC owns the WBA plain and simple.

Facts


ggddddeerrr

They’ve got a lot of influence but if anyone owns a sanctioning body it’s Bob Arum and the WBO lol


RRR04_

Pacquiao was with PBC and they stripped him of the WBA belt far quicker than they ordered a mandatory for Santa Cruz..


MayTooSway

Pacquiao was never with the PBC. He signed a “flexible contract” to fight under the PBC banner.


RRR04_

He had 3 fights with the PBC, he was basically a PBC fighter bruh. Makes no difference.


Benjips

That's because Manny was considering a fight vs. Ryan Garcia which was going to hold up their ultimate plan of Spence taking the belt.


Winter_Purpose8695

like how manny named his dog thurman


Soggy_nach0341

Fair enough. I like all the mf’s at 115. They all brawl there ass off. Although if estrada was more of a name brand or backed by money the WBA would gladly take the money to have estrada not fight


Feeling-Pipe-7461

I‘d hope the WBA would just disappear into nothingness. Most corrupt and ugliest belt


coyg0504

U think? To me the WBO is the ugliest belt by far Ngl. The regular WBA is ugly but super WBA is really nice imo


shibapenguinpig

I'll take Estrada vs Chocolatito III over any mandatory


j_boxing

Whole time Estrada had no clue because his manager didn't forward the email


CharRespecter

No belts for Choc III?


-BoyWonder

The Ring Magazine's still up for grabs.

Im still waiting for Estrada to go to Beristain. His current trainer is oneof the most good, limited trainers in Mexico. Think of Pavlik's dad always saying, "double the fucking jab" whenever Pavlik faced adversity. Estrada is slowly losing the chance to goto the next level.


Benjips

Franco should've lost to Maloney, I can't get over that. Man has become the latest email champion.


akselfs

Second time he vacates to avoid fighting his mandatory. If any other fighter did this you'd never hear the end of it


Aharfullofcum

Don't blame him, that purse was a joke
