You explained criteria for commerce clause decisions, doesn't hold up with how you think that covers Congress in making a regulatory body for a national boxing committee.

You have not explained at all how a boxing event effects interstate commerce.

There is no aggregate effect of the individual boxing commissions, we have seen in practice how the commissions have absolutely no effect of the boxing sport nationally. I have yet to see you explain how fighters fighting in a set location consittutes interstate commerce, especially when Lopez, the case you love so much, excludes considering indirect economic effect. There are no channels with regard to boxing since it opens solely in one location. So again help me out.
