Too many big heads in the boxing world already. No boxer's are gonna agree to that when in the boxing world the inmates already run the asylum so to speak. Guy's in the boxing world have heavy say on purse, who they decide to fight, where they fight, etc...

That wouldn't be the case under the UFC. Under a brand like the UFC you're a corporate bytch. They get paid pennies to the dollar under the UFC model, although as spectators they get the fights they want most of the time.

There's a reason why they're not into boxing.
Too many divas who can't be made to fight often
and want to get overpaid fighting cab drivers.
UFC wants weekly events. Boxing is all wrong for them.

They can't even keep their fighters because they are so cheap, let alone pay boxing purses.

Idk if It would be good. It would be good for boxing to have a "brand" but robbing fighters of money like they do in the UFC would suck. Then someone will making a boxing version of bellator etc

The boxing is better off with one organization controlling it like NBA, NFL and so forth. Is it disadvantageous to the players? Yes it could be. But for the betterment of the sport and to get back to the old glory of boxing. Boxing needs to get back on it's root and get rid of these leeching boxing organizations. It is better that way. Boxers will get lesser money, evil promoters will again prosper more which is not so good to hear but casuals will once again be seeing what truly is they crave for, which is the best fighting the best no stupid marination anymore where they wait for the fighters to get old and then fight. If a UFC model or some kind of organization with similar model could step in and wipe all those other organizations so be it.

If the umbrella organization was a union whose members were the athletes themselves, then it could be better for more fighters than it is now.

Great thread OP. I completely side with the idea that UFC going into promoting boxing would yield the best possible outcome for boxing. All boxing politics aside, the sport is in shambles with Haymon being the sole super power left standing on the wreckage.

GoldenBoy: IMO is a profitable brand for entertainment promotions but I believe their best days have passed them. Haymon is a calculated chess player and I don't see him throwing GoldenBoy a bone because why revive a hemorrhaging competitor? It's likely a management structure problem from the top down for GoldenBoy which is why nothing ever seems to go right for them. I'm not saying Haymon isn't tanking money either but he's at least in a position of strength with the most big names and a flexibility to adapt in a business climate..to do what needs to be done to strengthen and survive as a brand.

TopRank: Let's face it. Bob Arum is pushing 90 and honestly will not be here too much longer. It's completely rational to think a behemoth promotional company like TopRank that has been around for so long, would have the game plan to move on successfully if Bob were to pass. But in the event of losing someone who called the shots and brought order to TR, the possible infighting on top of exceeding expectations to get back on the horse to at least be competitive with PBC smells like failure.

RocNation: As much as a lot of us boxing fans despised Haymons bull in the china shop and unorthodox promotional tactics leaving the sport in the state it is in now, he at least has an intimate feel for the sport he so greatly influences. Haymon is making boxing his own and is in the position to take over the soul of boxing as the new heir. Jay Z or at least the RocNation management have one foot in boxing and one foot out. I don't see them willing to risk everything on boxing like Haymon has. That in itself smells like failure too. If Haymon has showed us anything, it's he's willing to take the sport to the brink in a cold war choking out the competition.

PBC: As for Haymons crown jewel in PBC he's simply made the right ambitious moves to easily take over going forward. Who would of thought this guy out of no where, burning all the bridges he did, would be the proper mastermind to takeover boxing-hopefully with positive results for boxing.

UFC: UFC has the stones and the voice of fight fans all over America and the world. I don't care for MMA/UFC but I respect the h*ll out of the package and aura it has created in their own lane. Boxing and combat sports in general is about blue collar society. Boxing has gone off the cliff into elitism where the essence of big fights is to be tailored for a classy higher class of the coat and tie society. It's a respect to the sweet science really for upper class intellectual society to see the sport as relative to the most competitive fields of professionalism. And it truly is. But the heart and soul of the sport should reside in it being more relatable to working class society like football and basketball. If boxing keeps going down this path of exclusivity under Haymon, where being a fighter is about being Donald Trump (flashy, classy, millionaire businessmen treating the profession as a trade rather than a craft) then it will turn into something like tennis where to partake in it is conducive to a privileged class of society. Dana White is someone who knows how to win and produce results. Trump has been a long time confidant to him and also copied the appeal for what Vince McMahon did to creating the breakthrough of WWE.

Bottom line, this sport needs fresh blood in it just like we needed fresh blood in our political establishment. Things need to change. Perspectives of the sport need to change. Boxing needs a makeover for a new age. Naturally the sports promotional power structure will breakdown leaving IMO Haymon in the driver seat. Just like Bob Arum needed Don King, Haymon needs his Don King in Dana White.
