WBF ready to take on Big 4?

The World Boxing Federation has declared themselves to be the most serious contender to challenge the WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO after sanctioning 40 bouts in 2011. “We bring sanity back into boxing by not bringing in ridiculous and meaningless titles which no fan really wants or having regional titles with ineligible fighters competing for it, simply to earn a sanction fee,” claims WBF President Howard Goldberg of South Africa. It was also announced that the WBF will introduce a new “Gaelic/Celtic” title. Meanwhile, WBF middleweight champion Karama Nyilawila (13-7-2, 6 KOs) defends his “world” title against Cagri Ermis (12-10-2, 4 KOs) on February 11 in Hamburg, Germany.
