Duh, the largest black hole in the Milky Way is the supermassive black hole at the center of Galaxy, not this. That black hole is what's holding the Milky Way together in one piece. Without it the Milky way would have spun out of existence.

Headline: "Astronomers discover largest black hole in Milky Way"

Article: "Astronomers identified the largest stellar black hole yet discovered in the Milky Way"

This is a good example of how headlines can not only mislead, but actually outright misinform people. I still don't understand why publishers don't make efforts to improve them despite all the issues that keep popping up with them over the years.

There are indeed galaxies with two supermassive black holes as the result of galactic mergers, but not Milky Way. If there are more than one supermassive black hole, then you will feel the effect of its gravity.

We have one though (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galactic_Center) which makes the headline "Astronomers discover largest black hole in Milky Way" false.
