And if they did, then they have moved into the role of advisor by definition.
    Hence why it’s important to have the experience that Tyson already has. If he at this stage of everything is getting ripped off, doesn’t know how to manage certain things and what he wants from a deal or whatnot then no one ever would.

    If you are an up and coming fighter then of course, but when you have the experience that Tyson has attained over the years, then you don’t need one. Get your solicitor and that’s it.

That’s why you would see that a lot of managers/advisers or former promoters are lawyers in their earlier careers.

    No, he needs an advisor or manager desperately. Legal representation can make sure a contract will hold up in court, but they aren't going to advise you of whether it makes commercial sense to bind yourself to Triller till 2023...Or if they did, they are becoming an adviser.

    Why would you need a promoter if you are Mike Tyson, a big name or sorting out exhibition fights? You need legal associates, you don’t even need a manager or an adviser, you have your demands, you have legal representation, who can attend meetings and put your stuffs together. Even if you are not educated like most of these boxers, you can still do this.

    Mike doesn't sound too pleased with Triller and how they handled the Roy Jones fight, or the finances specifically.

    Truer word's were never spoken.
    Promoter's along with all the alphabelts absolutely destroy the sport to line they're own pockets.

    Well said Mike. No fighter of known stature needs to a promoter, that’s the old way

    Mike doesn't need a promoter as much as he needs a trustworthy agent/manager.
