Welcome to Outside the Ring
"Outside the ring they [boxers] inhabit an alarmingly accelerated time."
Although they may not be on the covers of gossip magazines, boxers’ lives are just as interesting, if not more, than the overexposed celebrities so many Americans are obsessed with. The payoff for winning a huge fight is massive, and boxers often reward themselves in the most extravagant ways possible: picture the most expensive cars, homes, and clothes available, not to mention gorgeous wives, and families. In this section, we’ll give you the lowdown on how the champs are spending their hard-earned cash, how they maintain their different lifestyles, and any relationship news or gossip. The persona you get in the ring is just the tip of the iceberg with these guys.
This section will also cater to female fight enthusiasts, or just girls who want to know why they should be interested (I’ve got plenty of answers!). From party ideas to how boxing can help you meet your next boyfriend, the Outside the Ring section will have the ladies considering boxing in a whole new light.
