Last week I had well over 10k.

Then, I put everything I had on the Over 9.5 rounds in Malignaggi vs. Senchenko. A lot of people lost money on that (Malignaggi stopping someone?? - and it was just a round shy of hitting the over...)

If you had put a gun to most people's heads and asked them if it would go over or under, most would have picked the over.

Now I'm flat broke, for making what most people would consider a very good bet with a moderate fortune.

So a lot of it is just the luck of the draw. Boxing = unpredictable chaos. Part of what makes it fun.
that's why you never bet it all.
having 1-2k to bounce back from is key

I've learned that from Khan vs Peterson...
