When there is only one sanctioning body it makes it a lot easier. And let's be honest, the top boxers are making a TON more money than the top UFC fighters. Mayweather is making what, $20+M a fight these days? All of the fighters on a UFC card aren't making that combined. There is a lot more to lose, financially, as a boxer, if you lose a superfight than there is if you are a UFC fighter. Of course, there is also a lot more to gain.
