As no-one else has mentioned it, I will: Judges and refs would become full-time professionals held accountable for poor decisions and scorecards. I would wipe the slate clean, do away with the corrupt officials that are currently ruining boxing and start afresh. You would have to work your way up to international standard by having a good amateur and low-level professional officiating career. Those with experience officiating other sports at a high level would also be welcome to officiate for the organisation after prooving their credentials in boxing.

I would also give the green light for television replays but behind closed doors so the TV ref isn't influenced. All water used in corners would be issued by the organisation and all wraps and gloves will be checked prior to and post-fight. Leaving it to the athletic commision in that country or state is unacceptable, IMO.

Yeah, good call Losfer. I'm guessing Dave Paris and Terry O'Conor are history under your sanctioning rules then?

I'm not so sure about going back to 15 rounds.

Imagine watching another 3 rounds of Haye vs Valuev or Wlad vs Ibragimov..... or Mayweather vs DLH?

That's not even a word!!

Good ideas though

If I had a sanctioning body I would first wipe out all the others ones (somehow) and make sure I'm the governing body for the sport. Then I'd do my own shit.

One title per division - none of that interim bullshit. If a champion is injured and can't defend he can relinquish his title and be guaranteed a title shot on his comeback.

Make judges and referees much more accountable. 3 strikes and they're out policy.

Rankings committee to be made of boxing writers (proper ones, not internet wannabe journos) and experts from around the world.

Champion has to face no.1 contender AT LEAST once every 15 months.

Pension thingy/ benevolent fund in place

All medical expenses covered by org, regular medical check ups - BBBofC standard as that's one thing they really are good at.

I'll add more when I think of them

who would pick up the bill for full-time officials ,they would have to be paid for by the organazation sanctioning the fight so you would have increase santioning fees. could you imagine the argruments if the promoter paid them and his fighter won a close decision

15 rounds is essential. Seperate the men from the boys.

8oz gloves in all title fights.

I have another thing!!
I'd get rid of 10oz gloves for any fighter under heavyweight and also allow the old fashioned 6oz gloves back, mainly for the smaller weight divisions.... then maybe Ian Napa might finally score a knockout!!

I'd also do something about weight classes.

Deffo move CW back to 190 - add more depth to HW.

Yeah a pension fund is a really good idea.

Deducting 1% of a fighter's purse wouldn't cost the fighters hardly anything once you factor in PAYE & NI..... the board could match that through income from sponsorship deals or by taking a share of each promotion - say 10%.

That way if a fighter falls on hard times he can have something to draw from - but you have to draw a line with guys that get themselves banged up or squander absolute fortunes - like if Ricky Hatton turned up penniless

Plus I'd throw out journeymen that don't come to win - if they come and have a go then that's great, but turning up and running for four rounds doesn't do the sport any favours.
