KJ Noons stripped of title

I agree with this decision 100% KJ won't fight Diaz because he thinks Elite XC likes Diaz better.

Diaz vs Alvarez will probably be the title fight and Alvarez will hold that title for as long as he wants because Noons and Diaz can't beat him IMO.

I agree with this 100%. A champion doesn't turn down fights.

Reguardless if he likes his opponent or not.

Now look what you did to yourself K.J. You are really unmarketable. The gold was the only thing that kept you afloat.

No one will care anymore. :thumbsdown:

Agreed. Diaz deserved a rematch. I could see if KJ had demolished him in their first meeting but the fight was only stopped due to cuts. Noons should have manned up instead of making excuses. Props to EXC for stepping in.

Good move by EliteXC, does anybody agree that Mark Dion is the worst manager out there?

I was about to post this. Anyway, I respect their decision. When you hold a title you have to defend it, you can't refuse top fighters.

Very glad to hear about this. A champ fights whoever the company says is #1. Noons does not have the champion spirit and should not hold a title. Hope they can set up Diaz/Alvarez soon.

Good, hopefully this makes this fights come faster.

PS: Isn't it retarded how good Alvarez suddenly got?

i could of not put it any better he should of just taken the fight. i had never even heard of his boxing career and all that crap about not fighting the best competition. plain and simple if you are the belt holder, you can not really turn down a fight. kinda sounds like he is a little scared of diaz.

Respectful decision if he wont fight than what else can you do but strip him of it..

And for Mr Plazz. I have trained with Eddie before and grew up with him lol He has always been good haha

TO be honest with you guys I can see where this guys coming from. Elite xc hasnt been living up to there end of the deal. In the words of shonie carter they treat this guy like a wet food stamp. KJ was the champion and I think that after he won and defended his title against two great fighters it was more then time for them to renegotiate his contract.

He was trying to use the Diaz fight as a bargening chip so that he could go ahead and get the money he felt he deserved. elite xc didnt want to budge and didnt renegotiate the contract when clearly it should have been renegotiated. it would have been good for both sides to renegotiate KJ's contract.

To be honest both sides dropped the ball on this one. Elite XC should have held up their end of the bargain or at the very least tried to strike some deal with KJ where he got some more money ie. a win bonus or something. KJ should have also not tried to hold the title hostage because he is the champion and should defend the title accordingly.

I mean this is what the guy does for a living can you blame him for wanting to get payed what hes worth? Just a shitty situation all around that didnt have to be that way.
