    Hell yes. That guy was crazy, like, a real nutbag. He'd be more exciting than John "the very quiet man" Ruiz for sure.

    Yeah, if we can only change one that’d be it for me, too.

    Same day weigh in's should return. With this prior
    day weigh in nonsense a fighter can re hydrate up
    to 10-15 lbs heavier than the weight class he/she
    is assigned. Kind of defeats the purpose of weight
    classes right.
    If a boxer is having serious issues of getting down
    to certain weight, go up to the next weight class.

    Teddy would have actually fought instead of Moorer.

    Make the promoters fight for nobbins, all proceeds to the fighters that have nothing but gave everything.

    I'd put a maximum weight limit on heavyweight - 235 pounds.

    NO excessive clinching, unless you're inside fighting.

    Which is the reason day before weigh ins exist.
