No.

I think it's cool in theory, but the life of a prize fighter is really tough. Even guys that are absolutely amazing athletes and dedicated their entire life to the sport hover around top15~ and never make much money or get any sort of gratification or appreciation.

And even for those that do make it they sacrifice 30+ years of their life and probably shorten their life expectancy by a decade.
I also couldn't stand the bs politics and corruption of the sport. Just imagine what it must feel for Campillo after what should have been his biggest moment, only to have it stolen from you. He's robbed blind emotionally, financially and as an athlete.

It's a rough life for almost anyone trying.
