Biebut Shumenov, read an article about him in Ring magazine. He's from a very wealthy family.

One of the undefeated yank prospects (Ali?) has a wealthy Dad which means he hasn't tied himself down to a promotional deal with anyone and is fighting freelance.

The wealthiest has to be a heavyweight fighter out of Tennesee ,by the name of Carriere.His father,Larry Carriere owns the Bristl racetrack and signed a $100 million contract with ESPN years ago.I think he was the original owner of the WBF as well and sold it when his son quit boxing.

Eubank's originally from Loughborough Junction i think, I don't think he was born into a higher class family.

Barrera, his family had enough money to send him to law school. He still boxed at 16 though.

eubank jr middleclass? im sure the cunt would have lived like a spoilt rich kid growing up, if having a former millionaire celebrity dad doesnt constitute upper class, then what does? owning harrods?
