With 4 sanctioning bodies awarding Championship belts per division, No Sparring only recognizes True Champions of each division. To be recognized as a ‘True Champion’ one of three scenarios must happen: Two champions must fight each other-creating a lineal champion; The champion must defeat the #1 contender who may or may not also be a champion; clear evidence that the fighter is the best of the division which may or may not come from defeating other champions. With conflicts between boxing promotional companies and networks such as HBO and Showtime, No Sparring realizes it may be impossible for some fighters to face each other. This formal was designed on the format of TBRB, although the final rankings are purely of No Sparrings opinions. The overall goal is to show the must accurate rankings possible.
