Do college educated athletes perform better than non college athletes? You'd have to look at the stats, but a college degree says that you have been certified competent in your chosen major by an organization... The man who has his hand raised at the end of each boxing match is validated in the same way… You could look at it like this…

You beat a nobody: High School degree
You beat a Journey Man: Jr. College Degree
You beat a Contender: Bachelors Degree
You beat a Champion: Congratulations you have just attained something that less than 1% of the world will ever attain – I’ll even call you Dr. Boxing.

I know a lot of idiots with college degrees and a lot of fighters who could have paid a just a little more attention while they were in school… What I am saying is a degree is a piece of paper saying you passed whatever standard for the school you graduated from – a championship belt is a trophy saying the same thing – it is what you do, with either, afterwards that is the important part.

Whatever you go after in life, go after it full throttle and degree or no degree you can make your place in the world.

Outstanding analysis. Co sign.

And wasn't it aired on the last episode of 24/7 that JMM has a degree in accounting? They mentioned something when he was helping his son with a math problem or something. Correct me if i'm mistaken, anyone.

The problem with a fighter having a degree is that in most cases it eliminates the one thing that has drove them all of these years to be great. That thing is the hunger to get out of the desperate and meek situation that they come from. Of course there are exceptions to the rule but most of the time once a fighter who derives from poverty "sips the champagne" they never regain the hunger and drive it took them to get to the champagne.
