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?

when boxing is done right, it is already perfect.

i would give judges vision and sobriety tests before every fight. i'd also set up a panel to judge the judges and refs.

i'd have the good refs give clinics regularly to all the shitty refs. i'd bring back larry hazzard and make him the head of all the athletic commissions and a liason to all the sanctioning bodies. then i'd make sure he would be grooming a few successors.

i'd get rid of larry merchant and jim lampley...and give max kellerman a stern warning to get his shit straight or else he can join them.

i'd eliminate contract stipulations and catchweights. fight at ur weight, his weight or just give up pounds...but no more of this making ppl drain or come up to weights that aren't natural so u can beat a compromised fighter. fight straight up...or there is no fight.

while we're at it...let's go back to 8 weight divisions, 1 champ per division with a minimum of 2 title defenses every year, 15 round championship fights and 8 oz gloves for everyone under jr middle. 10 oz for everyone else.

no more sitting on titles or keeping fights in house with certain promoters. i don't give a shit who's a draw and who isn't.

last but not least....i'd stop giving mma/ufc a free piggy back ride on our sport. when i go to the barbershop...i got to get my hair cut...not to buy chicken wings or get a tattoo. when i tune in to watch baseball...i don't expect to hear shit about basketball or football...those are totally different sports.

Exactly! Besides, why would a jackass need a piggy back ride anyway (speaking of Dana White). I mean seriously, he acts as if he has it all together anyway.

So he should shut that lame cum dumpster that he calls a mouth, and stop speaking about boxers, boxing promoters, etc...especially since MMA/UFC and boxing aren't even in the same monetary bracket.

he reminds me of them dudes that have no game so they go around hating on the most popular dude in hopes that some chick will listen to him so he can pull one. let him handle his own shit with his own sport that i have absolutely no interest in. if i wanna know about his sport...i'll go to his site. btw...the boxing filter needs to be fixed on the front page.
