I used to fight in the underground clubs at night and after work. I fought right up into my late 50's when I got sick and needed heart surgery. If it wasn't for that, I'd still be doing it at almost 63. I was a solid 265 pounds when I fought. I've seen some pretty nasty career ending fights in my time, though.

You must be a hard SOB Cryptic. Was there much money in it then or did you do it for the rush?

In the context of it being a competitive sport? No. It is still a real sport, in the context of it being like figure-skating, acrobatics, and stunt work. The competition angle may be an act, but the danger is very much real, and in some ways it is more dangerous then boxing or mixed martial arts competitions.

More mellow now, but yeah, was a hard SOB in my younger years. I slowly changed, though, as I was raising a family. Also, even though the money was actually good, I never did it for the money. I didn't need the money. lol. I did it for the rush and just because I was good at it.
