Unified and Undisputed in 2008

By Michael Amakor

2007 was another great year for the sweet science, and historians will trace the renaissance of boxing to this decade. Who can honestly say boxing is dying, just look at the pay per view numbers for Mayweather vs. Hatton and Oscar De La Hoya, Cotto vs. Zab Judah and Mosley, Pavlik vs. Taylor, and they Calzaghe vs. Kessler mega fights that we all had they pleasure of viewing this year.

Sounds like the logical sequence of events in any fight game you would think, but nothing is ever that simple or orderly in boxing.

The concept of a unified and undisputed world champion first gained traction during Mike Tyson’s violent rise and manic destruction of Trevor Berbeck, James “Bone Crusher” Smith, and Tony Tucker the respective champions of the WBA, WBC and IBF back in 1987, to become the first unified and undisputed champion of the heavyweight division.

Tyson made six brutal knockout defenses as the unified and undisputed champion to popular acclaim and a media frenzy driven by a legion of new fans before getting knocked out by James Buster Douglas in 1990. ..continue
