Category vs. list

This needs to be a list, not a category. You are going to have boxers in a two-division, three division, four division, and even five divison category. That is overcategorization in my eyes.--Matt Tegen 13:14, 30 May 2007 (CDT)

If this could be sorted out, setting up a category would be favorable as the same has been done in similar cases (Southpaw World Champions, American World Champions).--Emaster 19:02, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Question: would not a four division champ also be a three and two division champion, and thus need to have those categories added to their pages? Just wondering. --Ric 14:16, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Yes, the category title "three division world champions" suggests that those champions should be attributed to the "two division world champions" category as well. Accordingly, Oscar De La Hoya would have to show up in five categories.--Emaster 18:28, 20 April 2008 (UTC)
At the moment, a multiple division world champion is only included in that category which counts all of the world titles he's won: Oscar De La Hoya, for instance, has only been added to the Six division world champions category.--Emaster 16:05, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
The matter is also being discussed here.--Emaster 10:43, 20 January 2012 (CST)

Which titles qualify a boxer to be considered a champion?

Having possessed one of which titles qualifies a boxer to be called a world champion? I'd propose having held the WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO, NBA, or NYSAC world title, or an ancient universally recognized world title.--Emaster 21:23, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

Image for the category page

An image depicting a multiple division world champion with his belts would be fitting, for instance this one showing Roy Jones Jr. or the topmost picture on this page showing Floyd Mayweather Jr.--Emaster 16:05, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
