I know that it will take a long time of training to get to amateur status. 2-4years or so, but is getting paid to fight hard to get to?
yes.

Lets be serious for a moment. You're looking at $300-$1000 as local fighter. The 0-0 fighters are not fighting for a paycheck. They are fighting for Ws in hopes of fighting for bigger shows. As a fighter you will need a day job or try to make a living somewhere in the gym.

You can make a living out of fighting though.
