We as boxing fans always talk about ways to improve the sport of boxing, but neglect the issue of fighter safety. I want to know what you guys think can be implemented to reduce the risk of long term effects from being hit in the head repeatedly. Also what effect would those issue have on the fan base and popularity of the sport. I was thinking maybe go to a mandatory 14 ounce glove size for all fights and maybe even making headgear mandatory, which I know will not be popular with hardcore or casual fans.

Change nothing, brutal? Well yes its boxing, I also think heavier gloves wouldn't help the situation. I think head guards would be unnecessary. These things happen, for what boxing is the death toll isn't that high and its not about just being a fan, this should be a sport for the fighters so I think it'd be best to ask them what they think
