Yes, but the WBA-WBC announcing that they want these two to
fight does absolutely nothing. The WBA/WBC isn't going to put
money into the purse so both fighters get what they want. On
the contrary...the promotion has to pay them sanctioning fees.
Lewis/Holyfield will come around when the promoters involved
can hammer out a deal. No sooner.

NOW they're merged! Obviously, if the WBA is going to
merge to make one true champion, then they're not going to allow
it's one true champion to also hold the IBF's title.

How so? By eliminating the IBF? Hopkins, Campas, Trinidad, Phillips,
Mosley, Bungu, Tapia, and Too Sharp Johnson are all worthy IBF
titlists. How willing will the SUPER CHAMPION be to fight these
awesome contenders? Not any more willing than they are now...which
This merger is an attempt to make more money by increasing the
recognizability of the WBA and WBC. Not 7 weeks ago, the WBA
president locked scorecards that might have shown a WBC
champion winning, and left the arena without explanation (Lopez-
Alvarez). And now you're telling me that these two organizations
are so cozy that they really have boxing's best interest in mind?
