How to Fix Boxing

And I don’t mean throw a fight. Now I’m not taking sides on the whole morality issue of whether pummeling another person senseless is a soul-enchancing sport. But if you want boxing to be more exciting, let’s up the action vs. dodging quotient. Enough of backpedaling ballerina stuff (entertaining only when done by Muhammed Ali did). Make the ring smaller. Or up the corner count by changing the shape of the ring. Round the cut-ins off if you think that’d cut down the bumping-into hazards.
