Upcoming Figher
 
I have a question to ask. I have this friend, who with some training(He has no actual training experience) could be the next big thing. He is 21 years old and held his own against a much older kid when he was a little younger who got offered to be trained for free in professional boxing. I could go on about different things, but it'd be pointless without actually showing you what he can do.
My friend does not have money to throw around training wise if it doesn't pay off, but I was thinking of sending videos of him doing something to a place that would sort of sponsor him I guess. After they see what he is capable of without any training or prior experience I am sure they will be impressed and curious as to what he can fully amount to.
He weighs 160, but he could easily lose 10 pounds. He is short, maybe around 5'4, but can hold his own against kids twice his size. I am sure he has something special about him, and I as his friend said I will do whatever it takes to give him a chance.
If you don't feel like reading all of that, my question is:
Who do I need to contact to give my friend a shot at being sponsored and trained for free? And what type of videos and/or things would they like to see.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I will be updating the whole ordeal as I go

thing is no one is going to risk spending money sponsering someone without knowing anything, you talk him up like he could be the next big MMA star but do you know how many other people think the same thing about themselves? You aren't going to get sponsered for anything until you show people why they should be sponsering you.

I was going to say pretty much the same thing yesterday, but you did a much more eloquent job.:thumb02:

dude thats not going to happen If this guy is 4 real about this then he needs to muster up some sort of cash classes at my university's fitness center which is a great work out but a joke 4 fighting run like 300 $ 4 ten and thats to trian with a really shitty washed up amature boxer and 85% girls. For now id say study submission fighting on youtube.

Instead of spending time trying to get some one with no experience sponsored, get a job and earn the money to pay for him to train at a real gym. This would be much more worthwhile there are no shortcuts in professional sports,

gyms are 100 bucks a month maximum... get a job n start training
