boxing and ufc
now this thread i think is half boxing and half mma. if the mods and super mods feel like it belongs more to boxing, please move it there, i am not sure how to move it to the boxing forum
in mma obviously ufc is the leader and the promoter. in boxing there is no single promotions, and the titles are shared by different orgs (theres about twice or thrice as much weightclasses, and for every weightclass theres about 5 different champions) but this is what i think they should do:
unify some of the weightclasses: Heavyweight, Cruiserweight+lightheavyweight, middleweight+super middleweight, superwelterweight+welterweight, super lightweight+lightweight, superfeatheweight+featherweight, superbantamweight+bantamweight, superflyweight+flyweight
then unify the different belts
they should set up a tournament and have inaugural champions, and have the tournament winner fight the champion.
Heavyweight: the Klitschko will stay champs for now, and should unify the belts with David Haye
Cruiserweight/Lightheavyweight- the poles control this division. since Adamek's move to heavyweight, Kryz Wlodar. should be the next champ, all others tournament
Middleweight/supermiddleweight- the winner of the super6 tournament (probably Andre Ward) should be declared the champion, and the Germans should have their own tournament to find a challenger(Stieglitz, Sartison, Sturm, Sylvester, Zbik, Martinez from argentina)
welterweight-they should make a supersix tournament for p4p greats (Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao, Shane Moseley, Paul Willians, Andre Berto, Miguel Cotto) it would sell huge
lightweight/super lightweight: Juan Manuel Marques as champ
featherweight/superfeatherweight:the champion should either be Chris John, Gamboa, or Juan Manuel Lopez.
all lower weightclasses: the Thai fighters should be champs in all weights (Poonsawat of bantamweight and Pongsaklek of flyweight and Oleydong of strawweight) all others should put in a tournament
now imagine those as champions: Wladimir Klitschko,Kryz. Wlodar., Andre Ward, Floyd Mayweather, Juan Manuel Marquez, Juan Manuel Lopez and the thai champions would all be fighting under one org.
now why wont a promotion, similar to zuffa, pick up the fighter contracts, have them all fight on cards couple of times per year, unify all the belts and do shows all over the world like the ufc in USA, Russia, Mexico, japan, Germany, Poland, Puerto Rico, the Phillipines, Thailand, Canada and Panama?? they would have top 10 rankings, have more viewers, make loads of money, have the fights people want to see etc.
