    Theyre also tallying odd fees,like promotion,managment,and corner fees. It almost never comes to a round figure

    No Prob to put it in perspective

    The Promoter makes=Way more then needed or deserved(this is a golden rule)
    The Matchmaker=Varies from guy to guy
    The Manager=About 20%
    The Corner/Trainer=About 7 percent,unless its Freddie Roach,in which case just co-sign the check and hand it over
    If the fighter wants to make anything,youve got to tally up this garbled mess of math and alot for it
