Now that they botched the Roger Clemens investigation, the government sets its eyes on boxing
After the ridiculous decision that named Timothy Bradley the winner over Manny Pacquiao in their recent fight, many people are outraged at the seemingly fixed outcomes and shoddy judging.
A few of those people happen to be in the United States Senate, including former Naval Academy boxer John McCain and former middleweight (and current Senate Majority Leader) Harry Reid.
McCain and Reid are now pushing for a national commission that would oversee the sport of boxing, and hopefully prevent absurd outcomes like the one in the Pacquiao-Bradley fight.
Do you think a federal commission would actually work, and bring integrity to the sport? Or would it still be the same old mess that we've grown to tolerate?
The bigger question: Could a federal commission finally force Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather to fight each other? That's really all I care about at this point.
