What would be the best way for a newly turned pro to get a good start and get experience and exposure quickly. Would getting a promoter be the best way or taking the route that tyson did?

I also read that tysons team would also film all of his fights and send them out to the top sports writters in the country. I could imagine that would get someone know quickly too.
Tyson's management team had a great plan, and a media blitz was part of it. Remember twice lost to Henry Tillman in the Olympic trials and was not as highly thought of besides being too short.
Not many can afford the Tyson plan, or have a potential Tyson. The best advice is not only to look good, make every fight a fight, take it to the opponent, dont just settle for a win.
