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.

brain hemorrhages can be avoided if a boxer is properly hydrated. the problem is that too many ppl believe that you have to sweat down to whatever weight you are fighting at. that is the absolute worse thing to do. there are better more careful ways to make weight. there needs to be more valuable education on the matter. changing glove size will not make a difference.
