World Title Fight pages

Here's the page that I've done (WBO Heavyweight Title Fights). I prefer the table setup as compared to just listing them because it is sortable. You can sort the different columns to make finding certain information easier instead of scanning the whole page for it. Also by having winner/loser instead of champion/challenger it eliminates the need to restate fighter A TKO fighter B, you just can have TKO between the winner and the loser. And it makes it better for sorting purposes. Compare your version and mine and I hope you come to the same conclusion.

I know you put a lot of time into creating the World Title Fight pages, however, the pages you created already exist as Categories. If you go to theses links (Category:World Title Fights, Category:World Title Lineages and Category:World Champions By Weight Class) and look around you will notice that the pages you created have the same information as these existing pages. The pages are also linked together for easy reference. Therefore, I'm going to remove the pages you created for these reasons.

Fight Succession Boxes

Instead of using the kind of succession box which is applied for title successions on boxer pages for fight successions as well, you can also use the newly created "Fight Succession Box", which gets rid of the year entry, which is superfluous for fight successions (example).--Emaster 05:06, 10 March 2008 (CDT)

De La Hoya v. Pacquiao

I reverted your edits of the fight. The report was apparently copied from Wikipedia and therefore includes links for 'December', 'Las Vegas' etc. which don't belong here and non-working links like 'The Ring.'--Wouter 08:11, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
