Boxing: Wait For New Weights OverPosted: April 3, 2008
Six new weights are to be added to boxing’s roster next year as bosses try to wring even more money out of confused and disaffected fans of the sometimes-bent sport.
They are Trouserweight, Bedlamweight, Sisterweight, Fireweight, Conkerweight and the new top-tier Taxiweight.
WBG spokesman Oscar De La Mammon said, “Research has shown that only 3% of boxing fans know what the weights mean anyway. We hope these new categories will slash that figure down to near-zero.”
