By far, the biggest joke for me in boxing is the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBC) (with the exception of the 900k marijuana bust that NSAC tried to levy on Chavez).  They need to be disolved... In my honest opinion, they seem to hurt boxing way more than they could ever help.  Seriously, they need to close shop or step down (get fired).
