As I said, they have to be made accountable. If a ref ****s up in the Prem, he is sent to the lower divisions. It should be the same in boxing.

Nope. As I alluded to before, I'd market the whole organisation better, in this fantasy world at least, and that would save sanctioning fees increasing.

I'd try and make as much money off of merchandise as I could; again look at the UFC- how many UFC hoodies and tshirts do you see out and about? I never see any boxing hoodies as people would wonder which organisation to buy a tshirt off of!

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
Fantastic idea. Like 1% of every fight sanctioned goes to the 'Boxers Fund' or something to help those who have suffered injuries in the ring or to help the families of any fighters who have been injured beyond being able to work or, in the worst case scenario, for boxers who have died inside the ropes.

Back to the 8 divs (Fly, Bantam, Feather, Light, Welter, Middle, Light Heavy. Heavy) and reintroduce weighing in on the day of the fight.

Only way to get boxing back to its best

Well, I often think of this myself, I have a pretty good plan or so I think in my head.

First off this Governing Body would look to favour the fighter, partly to get support, but mostly the fighters is who fights for the Title they deserve a better deal.

There would be 1 Title in all the weights currently used. I would not have an European title as the EBU is in Europe and Britian has the Lonsdale belt etc.. I respect their history and they need to be standalone IMO.

The rankings would be compiled by a ranking committe, basically 10 guys who meet once a week and are locked in a room to compile divisional rankings.

As of now, I would award the World Title to the Linear champion and in such cases where a linear champion is not apparent I would wait until a number 1 ranked fighter has beat a number 2 ranked fighter.

A champion would have to fight 3 times a year (unless due to injury), in this time he has to only make 1 mandotary defence, the other 2 are voluntary but the opponents have to be ranked in the top 15.

However, the main aim of the Body is to provide a International body. We would work with National Authorities in devising rules and regulations. Also we would help with ground roots promotions, and every fighter would be given health insurance from the body and a pension plan, aswell as the availability of advice and training (either in boxing or for a job outside of boxing)

Therewould be alot of interaction with fans to see changes they want, aswell as with boxers, promoters, managers etc...

Also the most important change IMO would be to bring back 15 rounders and same day weigh ins. I would also introduce check weigh ins where a fighter would have to weigh in every week leading up to a contest (in cases of domestic fighters and journymen they would have to weigh in every 2-3 weeks if they want to continue fighting) Also there would be yearly medicals for all boxers.

Judges and officials would also have retirement plans (and retiring boxers would have the chance to train in this profession). Officials would be paid by the commision and after every fight would be qaulity controlled by a Senior member of the commision. If any wrong doing or poor judging/officiating is discovered the judge recieves a warning, after 3 warnings a hearing is held with a chance for the judge to explain his actions.

Bit of a dream, but honestly if I had the money I would give it a shot.
