PANAMA CITY, Panama - The World Boxing Association is considering making a monumental change to its boxing matches.
The word out of WBA headquarters in Panama City, Panama is that the WBA's Governing Committee is looking into the matter of reducing the standard boxing matches from 10 rounds to 5 rounds.
This is being done in order to cut down on injuries which traditionally occur between the 6th and 10th round.
A spokesperson for the boxing authority stated that by limiting the boxing matches to just 5 rounds, they can hope to eliminate over 82 percent of all injuries.
A representative for the boxers union reportedly stated that it is the best idea since salsa picante (hot sauce).
One flyweight boxer from Mexico, Juanito De La Yarda, 27, joyfully remarked that now he will be able to fight until he's in his late 50s.
SIDENOTE: The WBA pointed out that reducing the boxing matches by 5 rounds will translate into a world wide boxing arena's electrical savings of $39.2 million per year.
