Glen Johnson was a construction worker while he boxed for most of his career. He was like the great majority of pro fighters who didn't get paid enough from the sport and had to work full-time in addition to boxing.

Hasim Rahman= drug crew enforcer
Freddie Pendleton= employee at a deli
Marvin Hagler= construction worker
Mike Tyson= mugger

marco antonio barrera= law student and accountant i think

Bhop= 50 cent with some extra change

Mike Tyson= cameo on " THE HANGOVER"

DE La HOYA=selling hair gel in MEXICO to make himself look cool.

MOSLEY= selling Herba Life or thats what they call it.

PWILL= getting kittens out of trees

Arreola= punking everyone for their menudo at the house

Ali= being bad ass and being his own stunt double in his own movie. he was the Ricardo Mayorga of smack talking with some serious skills and movement.

this is all satire because all boxers primary jobs are to provide us with some good ass fights. all fights should be like Haglar hearns or corrales castillio.
