    Get rid of 10 point scoring, keep it simple 8 rounds to 4

    Looks like the consensus here is to return to same day weigh ins.

    The weight bullies really **** me off personally, and make a mockery of the weight classes. Same day weigh ins would end that.

    Another one I would definitely change is for all world title fights to be over 15 rounds.

    I think 12 rounds for two elite boxers at the top is often not enough to determine a clear winner.

    Allow smoking in the venue.

    All pundits must wear a fedora, a bow tie and speak in a New York accent.

    Bring back the original weight classes and eliminate everything between middleweight and heavyweight.

    Bring back fights on boat decks.

    Bring back seconds dragging their downed fighters back to their corners and frantically waving huge towels to cool them off.

    Myeh, go **** yourself, see. Boston Tom McMustache would eat Vitali alive with his ability to stand and feint for for 75 rounds. Myeh see, myeh.

    You know this might actually work for me. I'm in.

    You think they're feints, but they're actually rapid blows.

    Myeh, You THINK because he's 5'6" he stands no chance but people actually ate better in 1858 than now. Plus the opium made him immune to pain, see. Myeh see Myeh , These effeminate Ruskies have nothing for 168lbs grass fed fury all coked out on Dr. Mctavishes headache feel good serum. Performance enhancing drugs weren't invented until George Foreman though see. IT'D BE A SLAUGHTER SEE, A SLAUGHTER.

    One substitute per fight allowed. If one boxer gets hurt, bring in a fresh guy for one round.

    Agreed. Exactly what I thought of first.
    The SAVED BY THE BELL RULE should be re-introduced.
    The round is over, the referee should let the interval proceed.
    It's just dumb to carry on counting when the bell has sounded.
