Boxing as a business opportunity

There is something raw about two opponents clashing against each other in the boxing match – where the pure strength, sheer willpower, and determination to push beyond the limits are the keys to success. It is a sport with rich traditions that could be traced back to the ancient times. Suchlike qualities are of the real value in the modern world. The industry of making money surely has to be one of the interested areas.

Another reason why venture capitalists might be interested in the discipline is the fanbase. Viewers tend to enjoy the good old-fashioned fistfight, and they come in numbers when there is a big boxing match to be held. The rise in popularity of Mixed Martial Arts seemed to have changed the scenery a little bit but nothing beats the classics. Besides that, people generally take better care of themselves nowadays. With new diet plans and training regimes, they try to live healthy lives. Many of them notice, and rightly so, that boxing can be quite an effective way to stay fit while working on some additional beneficial side effects like overall strength, cardiovascular health, coordination and composition, increased resistance and more.

All the above certainly didn’t escape the attention of celebrities, ex-athletes and other public persons, not necessarily from the boxing background. We have already mentioned the development of All-In Entertainment initiated by Jeff Fried and Phil Ivey a while back. The latter is a very renowned professional poker player. As ten-time golden bracelet winner, he usually stays in the loop when it comes to playing opportunities throughout the year. No stranger to the business world, he is not afraid to put his money into interesting projects. The talent agency is set to establish its status as a place where young, promising prospects will be recognized and have a real chance to climb the rungs of a successful fighting career. On a different note, a promoter and former boxer Floyd Mayweather has opened a pioneer tech-enabled boxing studio in Los Angeles earlier this year. Naturally, thanks to the Mayweather’s commonly recognizable brand, it has a good chance to become a hit spot to be working out at.

All the rich and famous involvement obviously does not mean there is no room for the rest of the world to have interesting ideas. Even semi-professional or amateur boxing enthusiasts might make a name for their own. A business venture in this department may take different forms. It could be as simple as an occasional class in local communities, or a small gym to gather some like-minded people around common cause.

Another way to go, especially if you like to throw a few punches yourself every now and then, could be to get certified as licensed instructor which would allow you to become a coach and teach more upscale classes. Most probably the competitors don’t waste their time but rather try to think of more improvements to get ahead and attract crowds to their establishments. Which is why every valuable addition helps. In the light of that, some clever entrepreneurs came up with unusual combinations of boxing and other fitness exercises, such as aerobics, Pilates or even ballet.
