you was cleaning up the amatuers and just turned pro.

you looking for big name fights and big money fights.....

but your manager keeps you fighting bums and nobodys who pose no threat to you.

The big names who want to fight you...your manager says not yet...because we need to get all we can before fighting someone like him.

How would you feel? would you go along with it or would you look at it like he doesnt beleive you can beat the guy or lacks confidence in your abilities at the higher levels.

how would you handle it?
you have the dude who is naturally thorough -Alpha
you have the dude that wants to be thorough so he pretend to be Alpha -Beta
then you have the nigga who wants to hang with the first two to be seen and grab any dropped crumbs.- Omega

I am still struggling between blocks to get from the have nots to the have yachts and I won't be stopped.

    too many outside factors to determine.....

    age and my personal circle would have a great influence.

    If i'm surrounding myself around peers, other pro fighters, if i feel talent wise i'm better than them, then i'm more then likely going to pressure my handlers to move me along quicker...

    however, i might be around business minded people who see the importance of building a brand, and that might make more sense to me, if i can get one amount for fighting a tough fight in fighter A, but 3 times as much for fighting easier fighter B, while also looking good, and adding a win to my resume...i'm going to chose fighter B..

    but again, that highly depends on who's presenting the information to me, and how much access i have to those things...

    First of all, generally speaking boxers aren't thinkers.

    Having said that, I think the best way to proceed with a boxing career is to fight bums to get your win/loss record up. A boxer thats 25-0 can command more than a boxer thats 28-3. In fact, a boxer thats 25-0 can command top dollar. So thats why your handlers have you fighting bums, to get that win/loss record up.

    Thats not always true. A 28-3 fighter with a better promoter than the 25-0 fighter will get more money because his name might be more recognizable especially considering who those 3 losses may have been against.

    I'm trusting my promoter because it sounds like he's doing the smart thing as long as he's mapping it out for me so it makes sense and we have a mutual agreement, a promoter wants the big money fights it doesn't sound like he's holding me back for his own personal gain, it sounds like I'm impatient and my competitive nature would get in the way of doing the smart thing and that's build up to that fight get some pro experience take out a few washed up names holding on for dear life, get my record up and get my name bubbling so when that big fight comes around I'll be more ready and there will be more money on the table and more leverage for my promoter to work with
