But he aint really nobody. 2 me I think boxers can make it big, but you just have to take the right steps as in any sport.

Same shit, like Basketball some people have to join teh NBDL be4 they can make the NBA, or some players do the over seas route be4 they make it big. And then you ahve some players that come str8 in movie up in rank to get title shots.

Same in boxing some fighters have good amateur careers, get hired by a promotion company and they put them in positions to make it big. Others dont really have a good amateur career, so they might still get an agent but wont get pushed to fight top opposition as yet, (NBDL scenerio)
and some actually fight overseas to get exposure. The money is there, fighters just need to put themself in a position to get it. IMO
Good points.
