Talk:World Title Fights Held in Canada
These are the private messages (PM) that BoxRec Montreal Editor Phil and I exchanged today, via the BoxRec Forum:

The Davey Hilton/Dingaan Thobela was for the WBC Super Middleweight Title not for the WBC International Super Featherweight Title.
Quickly off the top of my head i think you are missing the fight of Acelino Freitas and the fight of Harry Simon that were both for world titles and that was held in Toronto, CANADA in September 2000.
When I'm back home I'll check the list closely...but I think that it's pretty complete.
Bon travail mon ami! (Good work my friend!)
I, Ric, replied:
Phil, Regarding your question whether I intentionally decided to include "minor title fights like the WBC International or Continental of Americas or NABA or NABF in the list" -- I included only those bouts in the BoxRec database. I leave it up to you and others to decide the legitimacay of these "World Titles."
Feel free to chime in on this issue. --Ric 22:45, 23 Jul 2005 (CDT)
is this page up-to-date? --Ric 00:12, 9 April 2011 (UTC)
- No, the latest addition is from November 2009. There were more defenses by Bute and Pascal afterwards.--Emaster 00:24, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
Can anyone add any new world title bouts to this page? Thanks, in advance. --Ric 21:07, 31 March 2012 (CDT)
