Default Re: What percentage of fights are rigged?

At the higher levels I believe it's more along the lines of the promoter, and even in some instances the alphabet sanctioning bodies influencing the officials or judges into seeing a favorable outcome for their fighter. I don't believe fighters being paid to take dives is a normal occurrence, as that was more of a mob type fix, when boxing was much bigger, and a lot of money could be made with all the betting action going on. Not as much interest in the sport, means no real reason for such a shady deal.
