Make boxing more like a league and have the winners of fights receive the higher purse. Also force top contender to fight another top contender or lose their spot on the waiting list. Enough of the ducking, avoiding or "He's not big enough a name for me" bullshit that STOPS fights from happening.

have the judges paycheck reflect their performance, salary capping to stop large wage demands and fights from not happening, have a world championships of some sort, weigh in an hour before the fight to stop stupid weight differences in opponents, no fighting after a certain age, i would also stop holyfield from fighting but im not even sure if god could do that

Have fans and TV networks interested in who are the best fighters NOW, not of 5 years ago.

Remove the "closed shop" of fighters that rotate big money fights around amongst themselves.

2. Get rid of PPV and give major boxing deals to ABC, NBC, and CBS.

3. Bring back 15 round fights

4. Make the champion's next fight after a defense no longer than 6 months after the date of his previous defense barring a serious injury. If he does not fight then he is immediately stripped and the #1 and #2 contenders will fight for the ring title and the former champion is moved to #1 in the rankings by default with the loser of the 1 vs 2 fight staying at 2 and the winner of couse becoming champion.

5. The champion has to fight a #1 contender at least once a year.

That right there would be all you need.

Smaller gloves perhaps, 6oz.
Make judges accountable for their scoring.

I'd throw a lightning bolt at Great Britain and make the island sink to the bottom of the ocean. A ship would come by and save Hatton and Calzaghe, but they'd have to fight to the death with spears in a newly created boxing god coliseum

15 rounds, one belt per division would be a great start.

1. Set up a classification of titles:

RING- Undisputed
WBO/WBA/WBC/IBF - World TItles
all other titles- Regional Belts

2. Meldrick Taylor over Chavez

Have John Conteh fight Marvin Johnson, Get Larry Holmes and John Tate to duel it out over 15, and have Azumah Nelson fight Eusebio Pedroza.
