With no strap on the line for the December 8th fight between Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KO’s) and Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1, 39 KO’s), the World Boxing Organization has decided to slide on in by creating a new made up strap for Pacquiao and Marquez to fight for called the “WBO Champion of the decade” belt when they meet up at the MGM Grand, Grand Garden Arena, in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is pretty sad. Two guys fighting for a newly created strap by one of the sanctioning bodies. I wonder if there’s a sanctioning fee included with this?
