Boxing could have staved off its decline, at least a little, with a UFC-like business plan that included a constant presence on one cable network, one loaded PPV card per month, one championship belt per division, better marketing and promotion, and a charismatic, accountable leader like Dana White. But it’s a pipe dream, and we know it: Too many dirtbags make too much money feeding off the perpetual disorganization and lawlessness, so that’s how things will stay. The sport resembles a broken-down mansion that seems as if it can be salvaged — right until the housing inspector tells you about the water-damaged walls and termite-infested foundation rotted to the core.
This is from a Page 2 article by boxing analyst Bill Simmons, complimenting what the UFC has done management-wise and saying boxing would be smart to adopt the same ways. He went on to say that if boxing continues to go the way it is, Mayweather vs. De La Hoya fight will be the sport's "last big fight."

Thanks to ufcmania for the find.
