    12 round boxing

    I dont really find much enjoyment in watching a fight for 5 minutes like the three round ones at the olympics how about adding a 12 round boxing event.

    Five 36 minute fights in a fortnight? Hmm, pretty sure people will die.

    Part of the attraction of Olympic boxing is that it's over quite quickly... just a different style, more about skill and agility than a 12-round slog.

    Nah, BB is right. Its the multiple fights over a short period that is the reason (as well as it is the traditional amateur format).

    Meds would never allow multiple long fights.
