What conflicts, if any, exist in the world of Boxing?

A few weeks back, writer Kevin Iole said it was "...a dark day for boxing journalism" when Thomas Hauser went on HBO’s payroll. Iole’s main point was that you cannot be a true journalist and also a consultant to the industry which you’re covering, and that is basically what Hauser seems to have done. In short, he may have compromised himself in a way that does not foster the highest professional and ethical standards in boxing journalism.

Iole’s other point is that: HBO had silenced the man who many say has been their biggest critic in recent years by buying him out.

Now this is not about Hauser, but it is a lead in to the title of this Fan Post.

What other conflicts have you seen recently or in the past in the world of boxing?
