One more topic for good measure.

When I unfortunantelly read about Mosley getting into that ring once more, I've started wondering. People are quick to judge these days and immeditaly there were commnts about Mosley being broke. I know about his legal issues and lawyer fees because of his divorce, but is there any evidence or proof that he is getting back because of it? Same with James Toney or Roy Jones. People are talking about their bad or none investments at the beginning of their careers but is there any proof that they have these issues now and that's why they fight? Couldn't it be only the fact that they got their brains beaten out of their skulls? Or everyones favorite - they fight because they love the sport ?

If you have any websites or credible sources, please..poste them up. I am curious to see what's the deal...

It looks pretty negative C' (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

I am wondering whether some of these guys are actually doing it for the love of sport...Roy Jones didn't seem to be spending his money too wildly or at least he wasn't acting like "Hey look at my gold chainz". Holyfield is done because of his what....20 children? That's clear. But Mosley, Jones or other guys who have come out of the retirement...don't tell me they all fucked up!

Negative? It's money...not too many good things come out of it. Lol

I know how I feel when I get my little checks, so I can only imagine the whole gladiator syndrome that some of these guys have when they see these million dollar checks, lol.

I don't actually think Roy is broke. His addiction, like many other former "in the spotlight" personalities, may be crowd adulation or public praise. It's like that guy in the weight room, who's been absent for a couple of years, returns thinking he can push the weight he used to, failing to realize he's older and that weight isn't gonna feel the same.

Lastly, I agree w/ Shelly....that laundry list, especially, the first, can and usually does, keep fighters fighting waaaaaaay past their date of expiration.

Lol, right. Don't remind me of those old school cats that come in the gym with sweatbands, high socks, and goggles on...those dudes are wild! Lol

Money issues are nothing new to athletes, especially boxers. Think about it, Floyd can lace up and crack at least $20M in 36 minutes...that's some fast money for yo ass! I'm sure most fighters fighting past their expiration date think the same thing (for smaller money of course)..."If I can survive for 36 minutes, then I can pay off (insert liability here)".

Other athletes have to come back for a whole season to get that type of money, and they're usually bound to a contract, they REALLY have to play past their expiration date. Wouldn't wanna break a contract, now would we? Lol
