Olympic Boxing

There is very little enthusiasm for Olympic boxing anymore. I think there is a simple solution to help stem or reverse this lack of enthusiasm. Move boxing from the Summer Olympics to the Winter Olympics.

There is no reason boxing has to be part of the Summer Games. It's an indoor sport that can be held any time. If it is during the Summer it has to compete with swimming, track and field, gymnastics and lots of other sports. It were held during the Winter Games it would be a much bigger focus of attention - especially for the first few games where the change would be treated as a major story.

A simple solution . I can think of any reasons why this wouldn't work.
