What changes would you like to see in the sport next year? And what things bug you currently?

Id like to see a directive regarding even rounds. I think the idea that judges should be able to 'find' a rounds winner is wrong and often leads to poor decisions. A common sense approach is needed....nobody wants to see cards where some clown scores a load of even rounds, but there are times when even rounds are appropriate and scoring them as such would help.

I'd like to see Jay Nady booted out of the sport.....and other sh*t officials treated likewise.

a universal drugs testing system.

The elimination of the WBA's regular title

better matchmaking: when you look at the betting odds and compare it to UFC youre lucky to get 1 fight on a boxing card which is close to evens in odds whereas pretty much all UFC fights are on those lines.

Drugs and the now explicit use of touting sites need looking at.

Matchroom boxing dissolved.

On a serious note I think it is the same thing most people ask for on a daily basis.

Consequences for judges who make awful decisions
Life bans for drug cheats
A curb in the ticket pricing that's recently gone through the roof
And the most stupid and unrealistic request of all, the best to fight the best.

Matchroom will go on to much bigger things in 2017 not a fan of Hearn at all I was first one on here to expose him as a shyster but you have to admire Eddie as a promoter. He will be promoting some huge fights in the US next year and will make some serious coin doing so.

Not much to admire is there really though? Bet he's never worked a 2-10.

I'd love boxing to go back to the way it was and for everyone to boycott such shite match-ups as Haye -v- Bellew.  None of that's gonna happen and my interest will continue to wain I guess.  Given the way it has degenerated, I don't think dodgy or bad decisions matter that much any more.  It has gone the way of other 'sports' and money is the defining factor in everything.  Ripping the coin from fools who just vomit, piss themselves where they sit, and shout 'Knock him aaart' is the way of the boxing world and it aint gonna change again any time soon.  I'm not sure if I'll ever attend another live fight any more to be honest.  I'm just thankful that I was alive and witnessed some greats, who fought the best and fought regularly, without all the ridiculous table throwing and manufactured needle.  So long as the fools have money to spend, promoters will gladly part them from it without even having to work hard.

He as been privileged enough to go to public school and used his education well. I admire him in a way he as built Matchroom into a massive stable put on some great shows and done far better in Boxing in 5 or 6 years than his Dad ever did. No need really to say he as never worked a 2-10 I bet he does 12 hour days most days up and down the motorways in meetings and press conferences.
