Mixed bag on Fight News for me,

They are quick with results of fights. But not so good at separating fact from rumor. Gossip often qualifies as news, just as much as facts. You need to check out sites like ours to see if what Fightnews is saying is true or not. They also make too big a deal out of stories that are not news worthy trying to use cute pseudo-sounding names to grab attention. Too often, the "news" stories are little more than innuendo. It's like the staff thinks, "We have to write, SOMETHING today, no matter what." They are a big Boxing "National Enquirer."

I don't trust many people's P4P rankings or division rankings, and so on...it's a subjective thing at the end of the day. I don't even trust my own rankings...nor should you all trust it...I'd shamelessly put Joe Calzaghe on my 168 rankings every time...atop of the list, might I add.

I would blast box rec but they at least on a points system. Making it not so ugly. Dan Rachel is bias as fuck.

A voting system is in order.

Fresh new board members blocked out to avoid sabatage(yeah I know)
