Default Some Advice for those who want to go pro

Some things to think about as you make the transition from amateur to pro. When should you turn pro, should you turn pro, about your training, manager no manager, signing with a promoter or not, what promoters/managers/talent scouts/booking agents and matchmakers are looking at, what is a good deal, what isn't a good deal, why are some fighters prospects, and others who have better skills dont seem to get the opportunities? Knowing what fights to take or not, looking at yourself as your opponent see's you, things like that.
If you have a more detailed question, PM me.

Before you turn pro, think it through cos once you're in it, you're done. From the time you turn pro, you become whatever your pro record is. Your Record indicates whether you are a prospect, or an opponent, a boxer or a puncher, and even how much you get paid.
Promoters like the sparkling unbeaten records, matchmakers are looking to make good fights and to take care of the housefighter, a manager is hard to find cos the fighter ain't looking. Alot of fighters have a father and other family members involved, or a trainer who has no experience in the pro's at all. Look and this is important, protect yourself by checking your teams credentials, their experience and knowledge of the pro game, this is about you and your future.

A little old but it still holds true for the most part. Some advice from Nat Fleischer, creator of Ring Magazine.
The simple and sage advice of Nat Fleischer
The simple and sagely advice of Nat Fleischer continues to ring out from his little treasure of a boxing manual. “There’s plenty of room for good boxers in this world of ours, and if you start right in with the idea that you’re going to get somewhere, you’ll succeed.

“Get into the game with a bang.

Pitch in with the spirit that makes a fighter.

Show your ambition and don’t let it lag.

That’s what will lead to a successful career.

Persistence,

courage,

willpower,

gameness,

conscientious study

– in short – stick-to-itness – will get you to the top.

“By mastering the technique of balance, stance and fist-making, you have the three most important items in boxing under your control.”

A tip look to impress, you dont know who might be watching. Try to make an impression, show your fighting spirit so somebody or just the fan's takes notice of you. Fight with heart,and intensity. In other words try harder than the other guy dont wait on the other guy to make things happen, you make things happen force the issue.

Be proactive in your career, go to school, study, work hard, that means that one of your classrooms should be Youtube. Study fights and fighters, discuss them with your coach ask for their POV. Study your style, watch fighters with that style see how they done things and what things you could adopt that would compliment your style.

Good luck
