What do you all think?

If enough popular and money making fighters, stopped supporting the alphabet organization belts and met with the Association of Boxing Commission and somehow a resolution was passed that said:


1.) We are going back to 15 round championship fights

2.) We will arrange box-offs between all WBC/WBA/WBO/IBF champions, producing a single world champion for boxing to follow.

3.) What would happen if the fighters petitioned the Association of Boxing Commissions to do these things?

So many complain about the alphabet federations having too many belts and power. But little is done to reduce their power.

The obvious answer is that there is more money to be made by having multiple world champions over a single unified title holder. But if popular fighters could pettion the ABC to "turn back time" in boxing, could this be done? Why or why not?

1.) not sure i am totally with this. stretching the rounds bring back health hazards/issues such as dehydration...

2.) sounds great but the obstacle isn't just the fighters....it's the promoters/managers/networks as well.

3.) not much because most if not all boxers are bound by contractual obligations to management.

i'd love to see something like this happen....but i think the fighters themselves are obstacles as well. a lot of these guys are trying to play manager/fighter after watching guys like bhop, roy and now floyd have successful careers. not everyone can do what they have done...but it won't stop plenty of them from trying.
