This.

Boxing is global, and one of the problems is that governing bodies can be side stepped by simply staging any given fight in another jurisdiction. An independent, international organization is needed to ensure everyone everywhere is playing by the same rules. However the problem lies in forming such a body that everybody from very different cultures and economic levels will accept as binding, and preventing corruption within that body. It's in reality impossible, as we've seen corruption within the International Olympic Committee and other cases. As long as money is trading hands in the sport, there's going to be irregularities, corruption and scandal.
