Post Most title defenses in your Uni?
Using the old TB board game, Sugar Ray Leonard has my record @ 17 defenses of his WBA WW title before he retired unbeaten. Hagler had 16 defenses of his WBA MW strap before losing on a cut.

Last night Acelino Freitas defended his WBO JLW title for the 18th time via a 7th round KO of Alex Arthur in the computer version.

James Toney reached 17 defenses of his WBA SMW belt before being stopped by Mikkel Kessler trying to break the record of 18 1st.

Mine is a little difficult because of fighters with multiple titles may not defend each one each time out.

That said Jack Johnson defended the WBA HW title 21 times.

LHW - a measly 3 is the most defenses
MW - Klaus with 11 beats out Fitzsimmons with 10
WW - Peter Jackson with 11 beats out Tommy Ryan with 10
LW - Joe Gans with 13
FW - Jem Driscoll with only 6
BW - Johnny Coulon with 6 ... he also has another streak going now with 5
FLY - too new but Charley Harvey leads with 3

Back in my 1980 universe, Wilfredo Gomez defended his title 16 times. No one has come even close to that since. These days, 5 is good! As a fighter in the game racks up the numbers, it makes you realize how great a feat Joe Louis' 25 defenses really was. It just seems like it's only a matter of time before someone gets cut, draws lousy judges or GETS STRETCHED OUT.

Yeah, good points guys. Just one bad night & you're an ex champ.

What makes a long string of defenses even more impressive in my Uni is that I have guys fight in their primes so a young champ in his prime doesn't get to defend against an aging vet past or far past his prime. The "what if" factor is one of the many great aspects of this sim - what if these 2 guys met when both were @ their respective primes.

I, too, sim just about every title fight with the fighters in their prime. That's the beauty of the sim process to begin with :)

Rockabye Ruben was one of my favorites. As for me in my Universe prior to the crash Marvin Hagler and
Sugar Ray Robinson each had 17 defences in the Middleweight and Welterweight divisions.
