    Swap ONE current Boxing rule with a Classical one.

    This could be, for example:
    • 12 round distance to 15, 20 or even 45! Hell, why not unlimited again?
    • Next day weigh ins to Same day
    • Others...
    Give your choice, and explain how it would change the current world of Boxing. The cleverer or more extreme the better!

    I'd make the maximum pay about 400 quid a fight.

    That way we get fifty-fight-a-year schedules again.

    :lol:

    Considering that even back in the day top fighters like Kid Chocolate were making $100,000+, I don't think it'd go down well.

    Well whatever Harry Greb was making, that's what the P4P one should be getting paid.

    Bring back standing over your downed opponent.

    Greb was just a battle lusted freak. Bet he would still haggle for loads, though.

    My rule change might be changing gloves back to caestus. Imagine the shock and sheer insanity - everything the same except caestus being used.

    For a serious one, I would change the rules to bring back same day weigh ins. I think the extensive draining that a lot of fighters participate is very harmful, both short term and long term, and affects performance ability.

    If you want you should be able to sub your trainer in for a single round.

    I like it. Imagine if a Minimum-weight like Wanheng changed his trainer to someone like, I don't know, Roy Jones Jr. That undefeated streak might not end any time soon.

    Sticking with in ring rules, I'd make the gloves much smaller.

    Diamond Dog in reference to MGS or Bowie ? Or something else ?

    Nice one. You would see extensive parrying techniques make a big 'resurgence'.
