Oh C’mon! how did the WBA see fit to sanction Trevor Bryan and B.J. Flores in an interim WBA World Heavyweight title bout at Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona, on August 11, 2018.
Bryan’s incredible 20-0 record includes tomato cans and has-beens, with one credible 10 round decision win over Derric Rossy in 2015. Flores, 34-4-1, age 39, has held the IBA and NBA super cruiserweight world title, a sort of in-between division of lesser boxing organizations, but has never held a major world title. Flores went down three times in rounds three and four against Bryan.
If Bryan, whose record is mostly padded, wants a crack at Deontay Wilder or Anthony Joshua, he should get it, but it won’t last long. Bryan versus Flores has to be the worst heavyweight title sanction ever, even worse than the guy who got out of the crowd to fight Tommy Morrison for the title. Flores, whose entire career has been a protected one, could not even win a setup fight when it was handed to him on a silver platter.
Bryan, who is represented by none other than Don King, wants to fight the winner of the Manuel Charr versus Fres Oquendo WBA regular world title bout coming up, with the winner of that bout fighting Anthony Joshua. So now the WBA has three different heavyweight champions. Here a champ, there a champ, everywhere a champ. It’s ridiculous. World title bouts are becoming more and more a profit making joke,
