Default Championship fights: 15 rounds to 12 rounds

I assume that in the 1980s the boxing coucils IBF,WBA changed

the format of championship fights from 15 to 12 rounds. when and

why exactly did they make this change? Was it the boxing councils

who changed it or some other governing body?

Why won't any of you boxing history reply to my post? I'm curious

to hear anyone's insights or opinions. I wish heavyweight fights

or any weight class for that matter, went 15 rounds. It really

separated the men from the boys.

Default Here's why...

It had to do with the Mancini / Kim fight. The thought was that serious damage was done to fighters in the later rounds, so all the alphabet groups switched to 12 round championship fights. Some switched quicker than others, but they all changed due to the big outcry over the Mancini / Kim fight.

Thank you for the reply,No Mas, but I still think championship

fights would be more entertaining and decisive if they went 15.
