I don't know if this is done in the sport already but if they could do something to spice up things I'd say winner takes in 60% of the shares & gets a 15% bonus increase (from the winners share) if he wins by K.O. or Stoppage. I think with this rule added would increase the number of K.O.'s we see in each fight thus making the sport as popular as it once was. Everybody wins.......... except the loser.


What do you think the sport should add or even take away to make it better?

Easy....60/40 split to the winner and bonus $$$ for KOs. Eliminate the plethora of belts in each division, enforce mandatories and ban judges for egregious scorecards.

BTW, none of the aforementioned has a chance in hell of happening.

Make the divisions and belts mean something + Strictly enforce mandatories!

Making it more "interesting," I agree with Franchize and alaganza. Bnoles' & Gambit's points would probably help, but I can see a champion saying why should he risk his belt for a possible 40% return. Re. making it a "better" sport, I'd like to see the following (tall orders, but it would be nice to see):

1. Establish a national association (ideally an international association that coordinates with national associations, like FIFA does with the various national and regional FAs). A proper association that supersedes the WBA, WBCs, IBFs of the world.
a) The associations will co-ordinate/regulate promoters, judges and of course boxers.
) Judges will be officially ranked based on how many matches they've judged, the accuracy of their scorecards and their independence from the promoters.
c) The associations will set up a retirement and health care fund for professional boxers. For all the tea party boxers out there, participation in the retirement and health care fund will be voluntary so you will not be forced to support socialism.
d) Random blood and urine PED testing such as is done for the Olympics. Shit, if the Olympics, with its history of serious corruption can do such a good job with PED testing, then I don't see why boxing can't.

2. Manny Pacquaio lives up to his retirement promise to serve the Lord (no not the Bobfather). This will result in all of his supporters abandoning boxing, thus sparing me from hearing/reading the dark contents of their minds (that includes espn). That will truly be a beautiful day.

What if, in every fight, the winner were entitled to 80% of the purse split?

I was thinking the same thing!

Honestly though, if that were to happen, then we'd have a bunch of punch-drunk fighters...like most of the ones from the 80's.

1) Speedos.
2) Cage.
3) Fat pasty White guy who acts like a twelve year old owning all the fighters.
4) Stupid redneck fans.

The sport would grow.
