WBA President Gilberto Mendoza commented on the title inflation

in addition to the regular world Champions, there are Super-Champs, Franchise Champs, Interim Champs, Gold Champs, and the like. Especially the WBA and WBC are due to their title policy again and again in the criticism, as there is often more than one champion in a weight class. WBA President Gilberto Mendoza said now to the facts of the case.

Mendoza had indicated that the Promoter ask for the title, to give their boxers more Prestige, and to ensure better ratings. In addition, some Boxer would before Unification Fights press that he is planning, together with other world associations. "People say that there can only be one Champion, but you give me no good reasons. You tell me that the titles are devalued, but if we talk about to hold a tournament to determine a single Champion, then do not want to participate in any of it," he said in an Interview with "ESPN Deportes". "When we talk about the event of a Champion-against-Champion-Fights – then, not everyone is willing to participate."

"on the Other hand, a Boxer with a title better, he fights better, the transmitting station is doing better, also the Promoter of the title fight. The Fan who complains, is still attentive, when there is a battle for a title“, he defended the actions of the WBA. The Association is currently 39 Champions in seven weight classes. "We would like to have a balance in terms of the title, but what balance can we offer?", continued he. "Ideally, a tournament such as the World Boxing Super Series, where we have the Best and not only the fighters, who offer us one or two Promoter just."
