Boxing & MMA marriage viable?

What do you think about starting to have MMA matches on the udercards of pro boxing events to help get the sport some recognition? Comments?


I'd prefer to keep MMA as far removed from boxing as possible. MMA is (or appears to be) mostly legitimate right now.. boxing has a reputation for being extremely corrupt and shady... a marriage between MMA and boxing would only tarnish the reputation of MMA...

MMA will continue to grow organically, and I predict it will eventually surpass boxing in popularity anyway...

Ideas then on how to swing some of the professional cash from boxing into mma?
