Cheers brother! - Redd Foxx No Message - DionysusX 
Default At what point of a fighters career should they start demanding BIG$$$?

I know most might say after winning a title but there are so many out there...

Anyways, when do you think a fighter should start demanding big$$$ to fight?

When they can draw near sellouts of their home venue at regular event prices.

The moment there's big money being split off of the fighter, the fighter should get cut in, title or no title.

The overwhelming amount of big money fighters were already first ballot hall of famers well before they became ppv stars.

I think its a steps thing & not one certain moment. But basically anytime your revenue generating ability is exceeding your purse you should be asking for more money. And its case by case & relative too cuz obviously guys like Shukar Stevenson & Conlan who just turned pro are seeing more money in their first fight than a lot of guys are seeing 20 fights in or even their whole career in many cases so they'd have more ability to get more money than 99.9% of pro boxers.

I'm not sure there is a (x + y x z /abc) equation to break it down perfectly, but surely your TV ratings, ranking in the sport, social media presence, PPV buys & ticket selling ability are some of the things that'd say you aren't making what you should be making.

I guess there'd be some personal element in it to since boxing is such a brutal potentially life altering/life ending sport. If a boxer isn't making enough money to circumvent the risk he's taking on for his & his families sake he should be asking for enough money to make it worth putting who he is & his life on the line in event the worst happens.
