fark boxing.

That being said, for the sport to survive, it needs 1 governing body. No more WBF, WBC, LOL, WTF, ETC... 1 entity. Set rules/schedule/purse. No more individual negotiations. The champ fights the #1 contender every x months. Winner gets 70%. Loser gets 30. Don't like it? Go flip burgers. Also, no judges. You go till someone loses, at least in championship fights.

It would drastically change the culture of the sport, but, it would be for the best. Instead of people wondering if Paquiao (sp)/Maywether (sp) will ever happen, it would be a matter of counting down the days, and there would be no doubt (or at least minimal) both fighters aren't giving it 100%.

It will never happen, but thats why the sport will fade into obscurity.
