I would exchange the word "ineffective" with "crooked". Everything else is 100% on, but I do really think that guys like Don King ruined boxing. If you are a 6'4 230 guy with a mean streak and some fighting skills, why let some crooked a-hole steal money from you, fix your fight etc. when you can make more money and have more control over yourself?
