Round 7: Understanding Your Money

Understanding Your Money is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT! What you sign for is NOT what you are going to take home. As a professional boxer, you have an ‘overhead expense’ which you have to pay
EVERY fight unless agreed otherwise.

What is an ‘overhead expense’?

  • Manager
  • Trainer
  • Cutman
  • Strength & Conditioning Coach
  • Sparring Partners
  • License & Sanction fees

Every fight, you guys have to payout for the entities listed above. Ask yourself a couple of questions in regards to your current situation and then do the math…

  • What percentage do I have to pay each individual?
  • Collectively, what percentage do I pay out after each fight?
  • What percentage do I take home after paying everyone?
  • What can I do to lower my overhead expenses?

Answer these questions and you will further understand your money a lot better!

Protect Yourself at All Times!
