Some really interesting reading.

To add about fighters that have been promised large purses but after deductions walked away with very little worth looking up Tim Witherspoon v Frank Bruno.

He signed a contract for a 1$m dollar purse.....he cleared barely 60k once management fees training expenses & of course cuts for Don & Carl King.

He complained & became frozen out of the heavyweight scene because he had signed his sporting life away.Dempsey 100% correct before you sign anything take INDEPENDENT advice.

There is a saying over here if it seems to good to be true it often is.
