If Boxing Had a Sweet 16 Tourney for top fighters across 140-154 divisions

We know this is fantasy, but imagine the possibilities:

Here is how I would draw it up:

Top 16 Fighters across 140-154 divisions to be selected for a year-long tournament to be held once every 3-4 years. Catch weights could be sorted out by a predetermined formula, where the catch weight would be closer to the weight division of the higher ranked fighter. Biggest draws (Mayweather, Manny) would get a percentage of total tournament revenues).

Round 1 in March, Round 2 in June, Semifinals in Sept, and Final in December
