Where this leaves us is in an interesting position. Firstly it seems the WBA are taking a similar stance to the of the JBC when it comes to the multiple belt of the WBA. They are effectively saying that the secondary belts of the WBA are meaningless and could prevent fighters from not just unifying belts but also getting WBO world title fights. Secondly it shows us why Mr Hearn's announcement hasn't been made and thirdly it suggests that either Kameda won't be fighting McDonnell, or he will just not in a unification bout.
Whilst we would love to see the men get it on in a unification contest we do understand the WBO's view point here and wonder if we are going to see a change in the way we get unification contests in the future, or if the knock on is that the WBA will drop their ridiculous system of having multiple champions in almost every division.
At the moment there appears to be a large cloud looming over this contest and the next few days are going to be very interesting in regards to whether it takes place or not.
