The last undisputed heavyweight champion of the world was Lennox Lewis.

Boxing politics has often seen any chance of another undisputed champion under-mined.

A typical example being when Tyson Fury, only a matter of days after winning an array of belts against Wladimir Klitschko, was given an ultimatum to make a mandatory defence of one of them he was never going to be able to fulfil.

At Wembley Stadium, on Saturday evening, either Anthony Joshua or Wladimir Klitschko will leave the ring clutching the IBF, IBO and WBA belts.

The other two meaningful belts, the WBC and WBO are held by Deontay Wilder and Joseph Parker respectively.

Wilder, will be sat ringside at Wembley Stadium and the Bronze Bomber has already hinted that it is time to unify the division.

Already Wilder has spoken about a unification bout with the New Zealand heavyweight Parker, following that he wants to take on the winner of the clash at Wembley in a fight that would probably be the richest in boxing history.

But those best laid plans will, in our opinion, not happen.

Already, Eddie Hearn has spoken about the possibility of Anthony Joshua, if he is the victor at Wembley, having to relinquish a belt due to being unable to fulfil mandatory defence requirements.

Why, oh why, can?t those who perceive themselves as the governors of or sport, get their heads together and provide a path so that we have an undisputed world heavyweight champion, just like Lennox Lewis was.

Is it really that hard?
