The Nation details corruption in the boxing industry that leads to bribery, rigged fights, empty commissions, meaningless rankings and physical danger for the boxers. Boxing is the only sport where the same interest can promote both sides, creating an upper echelon of power and money, television and casino interests, while the boxers themselves are left out of the loop. Newfield suggests a Boxer's Bill of Rights that would protect boxers and redeem this corrupt sport.
