They're set for life, and never need to work again. If anyone needs a payday it's the rest of us.
This warrior talk also goes a bit too far sometimes. I understand they take risks every time they step into the ring, but they're entertainers who have made a choice to fight for a prize. Not as if they're soldiers or Roman gladiators.
Kessler vs Froch has to be PPV or the fight can't happen, they're getting paid £2million each! It's 100% PPV worthy imo, and is the best fight that could be made on British soil right now.
I'll quite happily be paying £300+ for a ringside seat to this, and i'm far from rich. It's a great fight and just be grateful that we don't have to pay out $60+ for every decent fight like they do in the US. £15 for a fight like this is absolutely nothing.
