Boxers Who Are Not The Mandatory Are Always Calling Out Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao And Wladimir Klitschko But There Is A Pecking Order
In boxing fighters always want to fight the reigning champ in their weight class. Even amateurs harbor reams of turning pro and taking on the top dog as soon as possible. However, in boxing there is a pecking order. You have to earn the right to fight the champ. You have to pay your dues. This is beneficial for a number of reasons.
Taking on someone with far more experience can result in serious, career altering injury. Therefore, the skill levels should be matched or at worst close. Fights must be properly matched. This is fair to the boxers and the fans, giving the former experience and the latter a good show. The best way to hone your craft and develop your skills is via experience. You are not born ready. You have to learn your trade.
It's also not good for one's career to lose a match too early. The more wins you accumulate, the better for your development and finances, as endorsers like backing winners. Therefore, let the pecking order work for you. Take the time to develop your craft. Observe, experience and learn. Turn yourself into the best boxer you can be, so when the moment comes to take on the champ, you'll be ready and do yourself proud.
