Heard Mike Tys's sparring partners used to make a couple grand per week. I read this in a local newspaper.

So I would imagine now days they make 5-10 grand right?

per week?


i doubt it.

david Rodela isn't making ten grand a week sparring with manny
if he is, power to him.

he deserves it. i'm sure he gets his shots in on manny when he's looking to get ready to fight and lets david open up, but i'd guess that he gets a viscous beating on the daily during manny's sparring weeks. he's going to carry that with him for the rest of his life

i'm guessing about 2-4 grand tops for porter per week for porter
he's a bit more talented than your average sparring partner

you could ask ellie sechbach haha

that's solid cash regardless

manny probably brings in three or four guys for sparring

it would be a huge expense to pay every sparring partner 10 grand a week for the four weeks you spar
(160 grand)

I know guys usually have sparring guys they work with every training camp, guys that mostly stopped fighting professional like David Rodela not really talking about them. Talking about the guys that are prospects or journeyman and are really there to emulate the opponent those guys get paid a lot I would think in the 3-7 thousand range right?

Also I actually know Elie but i havn't seen him in a long time he doesn't really come around SC anymore like he used to.
