Antonio Tarver and Glencoffe Johnson each set a fine example this week by turning their backs on the alphabet title belts which have made a mockery of their sport.
The world's two leading light-heavyweights had had enough of the politics which were on the verge of wrecking their mooted December world title showdown.
So this week Tarver and Johnson dumped their respective WBC and IBF belts in the trash can and will clash on December 18 simply for universal recognition as the only 175lb world champion who matters.
If only more top fighters would take heed of an example originally set by Mexican Marco Antonio Barrera in 2002 then world boxing would enjoy an immeasurably healthier outlook.
