First, a primer on the big 4 world sanctioning bodies for those who are a little new, or need a refresher: :)

The truth is the alphabet soup boys are a guilty pleasure for me. I loathe how twisted boxing has become because of them, but frankly I don't know if our sport would be as interesting were it not for their schenanagins. Sometimes, it's black comedy at it's best. My most recent example: finding out that when Erik Morales went for the NABF 122lbs title, it was against a guy who was listed at 12-6, but was really 0-1. That was a total cock-up, but very typical of the WBC-affiliated NABF.
