The money was a great bonus at times but I fought for free on more then one occasion just because I hadn't done enough tickets etc.

I'd go back to the amateurs even now if I could. What I would say is that people get to 22 and retire from the ams because they can't quite cut it. Keep it going its a great sport and your always learning.
Thanks

One more question; if you had to do it all over again what would u do differently?
