    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.

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
