"The old criminal friends wanted to help him out of his degrading existence."
"– of course it was tempting. Five salmon for no job. How much would I not be able to earn, really?"
"– at the same time there began to be a part proffsanbud and suddenly I got a request to box in the German Bundesliga. I would get a 6 000 for a won match and 4 000 for a lost. Give me 10 000 for a win and zero for a loss so is it a deal " I said. Plus somewhere to stay."

"– But they were decent and gave me a hundred dollars."
"In Germany heard the big house Sauerland of themselves with a proposal to become a professional."

"given his background, one would think that he grämer themselves every waking second to have missed the wealth. But it was not."
"– I don't care about the money that way. Certainly it would be nice to be financially independent but if I am jealous of, for example, Badou Jack, it is not for what he has earned, but for the world CHAMPIONSHIP belts he has. It is the titles I want to win, " says Anthony."
"Should become world champion”"
"Boxningstitlar and money are interrelated at least to a certain limit. Those who earn extremely much money bidding on a stardom not everyone has."
