Welcome to the shady side of boxing. A fix occurs when either one or both boxers already know the outcome of the fight before it even starts. An outside party or parties will payoff one of the boxers to take a dive in order to guarantee a winning bet. It happens rarely and is very difficult to prove. It's a common thing to yell out when the fight is not very good and is the first thought that arises in a suspicious looking match - "Ah it must have been fixed..." Boxing's reputation has been hurt by these actions.
