Re: I am a boxing manager: if you have questions about the boxing biz, ask!
Some managerial advice I have learned over the years, probably the most significant indicator of a successful fighter is that he has a tight team behind him. The fighter with the closer crew and a team that compliments each other and work well as a team I have seen have a greater chance at success.
Alot of times things get in the way, like ego's, agenda's, and drama's. They can be and is very disruptive to a fighter.
How many good fighters have you seen not go as far as you thought? You might have thought this guy is a future champ only to see him a year or so later a "coulda' been". You would be surprised at how much it actually happens and in alot of cases it's sad. So kids the morale of this is try to put together a team that is a team, with no superstars, let the kid be the the star.
