States have exercised their power to regulate their respective boxing commissions.

I think a more grounded solution would be for various states, California, Nevada, Florida, and etc. to make a united commssion, but you would have problems with people breaking it for big money fights.
Actually, you're dead wrong. I just wanted to see your answer. The federal government has authority under the commerce clause to regulate it.
