Fair point, but I think the gripe some people have is that he is using his 'celebrity status' to jump straight into Pro Boxing. I don't think many people could do that. I only got into boxing myself at about 31 years old, but as I didn't have the money behind me (or an ounce of the talent required!) I would never have dreamt about turning Pro with no experience, and ended up taking up White Collar as a hobby (which is something Freddie could have done, or look into the Ams)
