Default How should boxing be governed in Britain in future?

With the recent developments in regards to Luxembourg and the BBBofC etc and the potential splintering of the licensing scene, how would you propose to avoid alphabet chaos in the UK ?

In the hierarchy of boxing, where does this new standard fit:

Two fellas agreeing to a fight outside a pub
Two guys agreeing to a fight in a ring (i.e. white collar, exhibition)
Two fighters being paid to fight in a ring (i.e. "unlicensed" boxing as of last week)
Two licensed BBBofC fighters being paid to fight in a ring

Is the BBBofC a necessary organisation, upholding the tradition of the Lonsdale belt, looking after the interests of fighters etc, or just a bunch of fatcats like every other alphabet body, looking to s****e something of the top?
