    You have been given free reign to either start your own boxing organization or take over one of the major bodies of boxing.

    Which do you do and what rules or changes do you make to prove yours is the most relevant and should be viewed as the number 1 organization?

    First things first. Audley Harrison vs. Tye Fields for the vacant WBF glass jawed title.

    There's only one world champion in one division. No Super champ, Regular Champ, Silver Champ, Golden Champ, Interim Champ or whatever to make people confuse. Mandatory fight must be forced strictly and the challenger for the world title must be ranked in the top 10 list.

    Primary objective
    Sort out the ****ing rankings! Make them clear, transparent and open none of the Lovejoy ****, none of the illogical (IBF have Abe above Sagawa despite Sagawa winning their bout last year).

    When that's done we sort out the champions (because we know from the rankings that we have actual credible contenders in the right positions). Champion will be ordered to face the highest ranked contender in their next defense (we give them 1 freebie whilst we sort **** out).

    From our 15 man ranking we the order a tournament between the available top 8 (removing the #1 challenger) to get them to fight out in a Knockout competition, winner will be the mandatory in around 2 years time.

    We also cut the fees, undercutting the others (with the idea being the best fighters will chase our titles to keep themselves more in pocket).

    1 year after starting we set up regional titles, a European, Asia/Oriental, North American and Latin/South America. These will be the territories. Again, rankings are important, and we will crown inaugural regional champions based on an 8 man tournament.

    Regional champions are LIKELY, but not assured to be, ranked in the top 15.

    After year 3 we will begin to copy something similar to the JBC's champion carnival, making fighters defend against mandatories, which will be decided by tournaments (4 man if there's a champion, 8 if the title is vacant).

    We would only have 1 title UNLESS an interim is EXPLICITLY needed. When it is the titles are to be unified immediately.

    I'd have one belt, no Diamond, Super, Regular, Super Duper, Gold, Silver, Copper titles, just one belt.

    Mandatory fights, at least 1 per calendar year, so if you wish to fight twice, one of those has to be the mandatory. But you can fight as many times a year as you wish.

    Obviously there would be exceptions, injury, postponements due to valid reasons like PEDs, we would make a rule where you wouldn't be stripped but your next fight would have to be a mandatory.

    All challengers to be ranked in the top 5 and if they are all unavailable then we go down the list one at a time until we find the next available opponent.

    Have a points based ranking system that would be open and transparent for fighters and fans, so there could be no issue or complaint why and where somebody is ranked.

    If you were with our governing body and wish to stay in our rankings you would have to fight an opponent within 20 rankings of yourself every fight, if all fighters 20 places above and below are unavailable then it would be stretched to 25 above and below and then if that not possible the next available opponent on the list one ranking place at a time..

    We wouldn't tolerate a fighter ranked 10th fighting somebody ranked 110th for a little tune up, we would insist on somewhat competitive fights.

    If you are a champion and lose your belt, then you'd automatically be ranked 5th at best and no higher, you would have to fight and gain ranking points to get back in to mandatory position.

    We wouldn't allow or grant immediate rematches without crystal clear merit, head clash, fight stopped due to a foul, shocking decision.. but not injury.

    Our Judges would wear some form of Go Pro, therefore after any very controversial decision, if there's was an investigation we could view what exactly the judge was seeing and we would make this available to the public and the judge would have to explain his scoring.

    And this is why I'd have no fighters wanting to fight for my Title, too many harsh rules.

    Eliminate sanctioning fees which would kill the urge to have 3 to 4 belt holders within one organization.. And have a universal ranking system.. I never understood how the WBC can have a top 15 but then the IBF would have an almost completely different top 15.. why not just used a universal ranking like the Ring, ESPN or transitional..

    1. One single championship belt. Below that that intercontinental, continental and regional... 4 in total.

    2. Top 15 ranked on merit, not popularity, nationality and/or money. Beltholders of the other orgs will be ranked, and can become mandatory.

    3. Mandatory defences have to take place within a year and like mentioned in (2.) can include other beltholders. Unification (without being the mandatory too)
    can overrule mandatory once, but after that the mandatory defence will have to be met. If non the mandatory or any of the beltholders have the cojones to
    fight the beltholder, a new mandatory will be appointed.

    4. Missing weight 3 times will get you dropped from the rankings, no matter how good you are, and needs another 3 fights within the weightlimit to re-enter.

    5. VADA testing mandatory. No if's or but's, and no exceptions. 2 year ban for first offence, 4 year for second and lifetime for the repeat offenders.
    With exception to 1 year first offence, if there's actually a very good chance it was accidental, and 4 year first offence with cases like Miller.

    6. Officials in titlefights are from different countries as the boxers, or one from each country among the judges, but never the referee.
    The ones who screw up once get a short timeout. Screw up again, get a longer timeout and mandatory training, 3rd time removed from roster. (Real screwups)
    Officials that regularly are slightly off, get reprimanded and mandatory training, and removed from roster when keeping it up.
    Boxers can always veto officials, and the ones that get veto'd often are removed entirely due to obvious toxicity.

    7. Fights can and will be overruled when there are major irregularities. No waiting for years or forever to get a fight overturned.

    8. Sanctioning fees are percentual, upto a certain limit. Boxers that make little money even in titlefights (it happens) aren't taxed heavily on their winnings,
    insanely overpaid fighters will.

    If I could re-do all of the 4 major organizations:

    1. For title fights (at least), 15 judges score the fight, 3 on each side of the ring, and another 3 via closed circuit tv. All judges must have 20/20 vision and be under 65 years of age.

    2. At least three refs. One inside the ring making the calls, two outside the ring watching closed circuit tv and instant replays and who together can overrule calls (such as stoppage, knockdowns vs slips, point deductions) made by the inside-the-ring ref.

    3. A re-organizing/re-naming/adding of weight classes in the upper tiers:
    168 - 175 will no longer be labeled as "light heavyweight" but will instead become the new "cruiserweight"
    175 - 195 lbs will be a new weight class called "super cruiserweight"
    195 - 220 lbs will be the new "light heavyweight"
    220+ will be the new "heavyweight"

    Back to same day weigh-ins.

    Abolish weights: 105, 108, 115, 122, 130, 140 and 154, leaving the original 8, CW and SMW. With one title per weight.

    15 rounds reserved for title fights, 12 for final eliminators, 10 for the average eliminators.

    Champions mandated to fight their number one contender every three months, but they can often in non-title fights like they did in the before the 90s.

    Referee's like the ones in Duran's era.

    Let's make boxing great again. :deal:
