Yes they do, but if a fighter just does his homework he should be alright, I hate to say it but thats why you bring in a manager. Whoever gives you advice consider the source, does he have history, experience? Watching the fights and knowing the fighters doesnt make a manager, being a father who raised you from a peanut doesnt mean he has the experience. So be wise as to who you put in front of you.
You know upfront how long the contract will be, plus the extensions. Dont think those extensions are cheap, the promoter has to meet certain criteria, otherwise you gone.
