Just a couple of thoughts...


-Saturday night boxing on National Television. CBS, NBC, FOX, etc...

-More Tournaments (i.e Super 6)... Can you imagine a super 6 or a tournament for Welterweight, Light Heavyweight, Bantamweight and Featherweight?

-Better undercards for PPV events

Because hypothetically you have someone like DLH vs Wright. The fight generates 'x' amount of dollars (lets say $30 million). Everybody knows full well that Wright didn't contribute much to it at all. Having any percentage in his favor is ridiculous because getting 60% of a percentage against someone like Williams or Hopkins wouldn't even generate 40% he would make off DLH, so it entirely isn't fair.
I was more thinking of a pot.
DLH-Wright should split lets say $25 million ($20 million for DLH and $5 million for Wright). The extra $5 million is a purse or jackpot which goes to the winner or something.
I still think the guy responsible for generating the money should get a portion. I just think that money should be put a side for performance. They shouldn't get everything until they complete their finished job.

Fair enough. I still think there should be an incentive attached to motivate fighters to put in their best efforts. Some fighters just give up in the middle and say, "Fuck it, I'm getting paid either way."

BUT let's not kid ourselves. Boxing is an acquired taste - do we really NEED more casual fans? I mean if you are not going to really appreciate the art and history of the sport do we really need more half-assed fans tuning in? I like my boxing the way it is. But sharing with the rest of the world would not hurt - I guess.

I know I get irritated as fuck around these fairweather fanboy groupies hanging off the nutz of one or two overrated hype jobs. I guess in thinking about that, I wouldn't necessarily want more casual fans, but rather getting rid of all these technicalities that screw fight fans out of watching decent matchups more often. Right now we get GOOD fights maybe, what? 3 times a year? What kind of bullshit is that?

I think drawing in revenue from the larger casual fan base would encourage these greedy fuck promoters to start making good fights more often, rather than spreading them out over time and charging ass rape prices.
