Default Re: Some Advice for those who want to go pro

A little old but it still holds true for the most part. Some advice from Nat Fleischer, creator of Ring Magazine.
The simple and sage advice of Nat Fleischer
The simple and sagely advice of Nat Fleischer continues to ring out from his little treasure of a boxing manual. “There’s plenty of room for good boxers in this world of ours, and if you start right in with the idea that you’re going to get somewhere, you’ll succeed.

“Get into the game with a bang.

Pitch in with the spirit that makes a fighter.

Show your ambition and don’t let it lag.

That’s what will lead to a successful career.

Persistence,

courage,

willpower,

gameness,

conscientious study

– in short – stick-to-itness – will get you to the top.

“By mastering the technique of balance, stance and fist-making, you have the three most important items in boxing under your control.”
