Sometimes it is the other way around though, and the fighter (through his management) contacts the promoter and pushes to fight on a certain show. Then if the promoter agrees they usually find a suitable opponent or approach a viable opponent through their management.


So is that why you don't know who your next opponent will be?

That's right. I am waiting for them to find an opponent. But that could mean a keeping busy fight, a title eliminator, or even a title fight. So who knows what opportunities will arise.

Ah, that makes more sense now. That must be at the same time frustrating and exciting, not knowing who's gonna be the next man you face.

Is that a disavantage though? How quick will the fight come once you know who you are facing? Will it give you enough time to take a look at the fighter and work out your plan for the fight?

For non-champions, often it is a case of very little notice for fights. That is why it is a very good idea for fighters to always keep in shape. A champion, you should get plenty of notice though.

Does that bother you, or is it just that's how it is, so you don't feel offended?

That's how boxing has always been as far as I am concerned. It's just the way it is. Sometimes you get notice, other times you have to take what comes, but if you make sure you are always ready for a fight, then this shouldn't be a problem.
