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

Fighters have to be told sometimes when they are unrealistic in where they think they can go.Can they move up in levels,they have but come up short?Have they plateaued as a fighter,the game has taken the best you have?Have they found their level be it domestic low as journeyman level (4 rounders) or as high as competitive 10 rounders?This especially when a fighter has reached the height of their career & start to slide opportunities missed.

Your circumstances come into play of course ($,) but if you don't want to just become a name on someone elses record is it for you anymore?If you don't train right,live right & the hunger goes some hard questions of yourself need to be asked.

You are a long time retired they say in sport it makes people go on to have that one more season in most sports we all see the veteran player that we remember at their peak but go on too long.'Hay he isn't as good as he was!'We have all said it.

This is different,this is boxing better to have walked away one fight less than one too many.Truth certainly hurts sometimes.
