Reflecting on the same, he stated, “See they upset because I’m able to milk the game. I’m smart. I made a lot of smart investments. You know what? Great people like Warren Buffet, when they get money, their 50s-60s, 80s, and even 90s it’s okay. I was able to leave boxing, on my own terms. To keep all my factories, kept a lot of money. So they are upset that I’m able to go out there and make 40-60 Million.”

One take at a time

I am a boxing author at EssentiallySports. My love for the 'Sweet Science’, came about after Conor McGregor crossed sports and ventured into boxing to face Floyd Mayweather.
