Default Re: I am a boxing manager: if you have questions about the boxing biz, ask!

I have been asked what do look for in a fighter. First, I listen to regular fan's not so much the trainers, trainers have an agenda, their guys are always the greatest fighters. I listen for buzz words, "Man, can that guy fight!", or my preference "Did you see that punch!?". Then I see for myself, what's what, then I talk to people who know the scene(amateur and pro).
I really don't go to a fighters trainer cos I will get a long commercial. I usually don't go after the winners of tournaments, for many reasons. Best advice I could give you is to get a feel for who's who in your local area and get a feel for the lay of the land.
