Alphabet organizations rankings

I'd like a little bit of insider info here.

Some of the rankings do not make any sense to me. Might be because I do not have a keen understanding of their system of ranking.

If you understand please relate it to me. If you know of an article that will explain then please direct me to it.

Here are my questions:

 

1. Why can't a belt holder for the WBA be ranked by the WBO or other organizations?

 

2. Why is a fighter ranked higher in one organization than the other, then too, not ranked at all?

 

3. Why were Bradley, Alexander, Sergio Martinez stripped of the titles they won fair and square?

 

I'll use Jr. Welter as my example.

Yeah, there is NOTHING to consider. It all boils down to corruption. Money changing hands, promoters bribing orgs to manipulate rankings in their fighter's favour, orgs ripping off fighters by charging them sanctioning fees for meaningless "World titles", boxers paying the fees for fear of not ever being in contention for a REAL World title if the opportunity should arise (i assume that is why boxers bother paying fees for meaningless titles) etc....

 

Boxing has never moved with the times. It is run today like it was 60 years ago.

1 No org allows another champion to be ranked, I kind of like that TBH, means a unification is between the fighters and not the orgs, though the orgs shouldn't stand in the way of them.

 

2 Generally it's due to corruption or favourtis, you'll see certain nations and certain fighters popping up for one board or another. Also remember that Japan only recognises the WBC and WBA (Montiels WBO title wasn't on the line when he fought Hasegawa because of this)

 

3 Because the boards didn't see them as cash spinning fighters ;-)
