He does not even have £3000 at his disposable.

Another boxer who did not invest his earnings wisely.

Same story seems to repeat and rinse with boxers.

Shame.

Wonder how much he made in his career? There are a lot of costs incurred while boxing, even big purses get eaten into.


You would hope that people he has worked with will chip in. Hearn and Warren between them could cover this without blinking. Some of his ex gym mates, amateur team mates, and opponents too.


Seems a bit suspect though. Also, not sure why you wouldn't insure them and keep them secured.

He had a lot of hype around him when he won the world amateur gild. Was signed by Warren after the 2008 Olympics on a very good contract.

Plus with the money he earned From his time at Matchroom.

He I would guess has earned enough to have a nice mortgage free house and have small business providing a steady income.

Brook fight should have been a decent pay out too. He's probably not looked after his money.

Most young people aren't careful with cash, but most of us have long working lives to sort it out.

I imagine a lot of people would mess up if they passed their peak earning capacity by 30.

Its just a case of boxers not knowing how to manage their finances. Even the ones who earn millions more often then not end up broke.

Locally here in Birmingham Gamal Yafai has a popular fast food joint and is earning a healthy income outside boxing. But boxers like him are few and far between.

That is thankfully becoming less common with the big fighters in the UK. Most of them still seem financially secure.

The guys at the level below that though, guys like Gavin, Mitchell, or Murray still seem able to blow it.

Boxers are usually young, often uneducated guys, from working class backgrounds, a lot won't have any financial sense.

Their managers, and promoters should do more to help them. Seems like Hearn at least encourages them to buy property. So that's something.

Well if he put his mind to it...he could squeeze one or two big paychecks from Boxing.

Start talking non stop smack and issuing challenges on Social media and sending press releases to the Tabloids calling out every fighter with name value out there from 147 to 154.

Somebody looking for a tuneup might make him an offer.

Being obscure does not get the fights. Its knowing how to hustle.

Nah, these are grown ass men. Need to take responsibility at some point for your life. Reminds me of what Gabriel Rosado said in an interview about his manager. Dude was praising his manager because he tells him when to file his taxes! Fuck me, these people are fucking idiots.

Dude, I knew about taxes back in high school since I had to fill out a FAFSA by myself.
