You get used to a lavish lifestyle due to having a lot of money in the bank account, until the money stops coming. In your late 30's you can already be out of a job and without any future income. Suddenly the hundreds of thousands that you have made do not seem like such a large amount of money.
A plan beyond boxing should be recommended to every boxer.
Agreed. Have something to fall back on or at least know the business side of the sport as well.
