What Shawn said. q=*:* is a "constant score query", i.e. every match
has a score as 1.0.
fq clauses don't contribute to the score. The boosts you're specifying
have absolutely no effect.
Move the fq clause to your main query (q=) to see any effect.
Try adding &debug=all to your query and look at the explanation of how
the score is calculated, I suspect you'll find them all 1.0.
