Quote of the Day
In the old days they, the promoters, wanted more and more from me. They wanted me to jump or spill my blood and break my bones. Every time they wanted me to jump further, and further, and further. Hell, they thought my bike had wings.
Me and my dad are the biggest promoters of an estate tax in the US. It's not a popular position.
If you had a successful TV show, people wanted to see you live. Promoters had had practice with pop groups, and 'Python' achieved a similar status. We also had lots of rock star fans - George Harrison, Pink Floyd, Robert Plant. Promoters saw that and liked it.

All fighters are prostitutes and all promoters are pimps.
Television is not the exclusive target of promoters. Is Superman really worthy of a Newsweek cover?

I'm a free agent. I haven't allowed any promoters to have exclusive options on my fight. I don't need a promoter.
Sugar Ray Leonard

Fighting is my career, it's what I love to do, but I am taking offers and trying to expand because the more I expand myself, the more valuable I become to promoters.

They've gone to great length to disguise the fact that I'm not in the band, even sending out a photo to promoters with my picture in it which then winds up in some of the ads on the flyers.
