You are citing the boxers that have been groomed from birth. Most young black Americans aren't opting for boxing first the way much more would've in previous generations.Not really…the average height of a basketball player is 6’7 so this would only hold true for the heavyweight division where giants like Fury + Wilder operate. Also, apart from the latter, I can’t really think of any other boxers who took up the sport late as all the other top black boxers e.g. Spence, Crawford, Davis, Stevenson + Ennis have extensive amateur experience.
In other words, the pendulum has swung in the other direction and blacks are no longer THE dominant force in the sport anymore.
Ivan isnt that stupid to sign this. Is he?Milan negotiating with Puma for their sponsorship renewal at 20M a year. They're also negotiating with Fly Emirates.
Guy can play attacking right, attacking left, AM... a good squad player, those crazy feckers might even play Chiesa as right-back on sum occasions with ADM his partner on the flank.Why would Juve sign Di Maria with Chiesa in that position? Perhaps his recovery is not progressing as well as expected? I get that they are adding a good player but this Bosman and high wages strategy has not worked well in the past. I believe Di Maria is set to earn 7-8 million.
I saw that. 20m plus 2m in bonuses, to be honest, that seems too low, especially considering how much revenue we bring in to Puma.
we barely cracked #10 back then with ~650k jerseys sold. last year we didn't even make the top 10. we were probably somewhere around 11-15 with teams like inter, arsenal, tottenham.In 2016, we were still a top 10 selling shirt in the world. That's deep banter era. Considering we get more special edition gear than City, and sell those items out fast, apparently even that Puma x Nemen 4th kit sold really well.
If I was Gazidis, I would be insulted by that offer. Adidas paid 23-25m in a deal that was signed like 10 years ago.
The stats from last year that were roundly shared, even put on statista, were actually found to be egregiously wrong, and were done by a South American Sports marketing company and were discredited.we barely cracked #10 back then with ~650k jerseys sold. last year we didn't even make the top 10. we were probably somewhere around 11-15 with teams like inter, arsenal, tottenham.
so 20mil seems pretty fair imo when considering dortmund gets 30mil from puma and they were on #8 with 1.22mil jerseys sold (more than psg and city)
we can't expect 40mil deals after literally being a dumpster fire for almost a decade. we're good for only two years now. let's get regular CL, win some titles and trust daPlan better sponsor deals should arrive then
If we draw and Inter win, so we both finish even and we win Scudetto due to H2H...

point still stands, even if the numbers are off or not reliable. expecting much bigger sponsor deals is just delusional. we're not there yet. you can't erase a 10 year irrelevance within two yearsThe stats from last year that were roundly shared, even put on statista, were actually found to be egregiously wrong, and were done by a South American Sports marketing company and were discredited.
I have not been able to find data that is reliable after that year in 2016, to be honest. There is a real possibility that we have fallen out of the top 10 since then, but again, finding reliable data is difficult. Regardless, Milan's value to Puma goes beyond shirt sales, as my post indicated.
Oh, and in 2016, we actually exceeded 11th place (Atletico) by 150,000 shirts. I don't know if that "barely" counts when you're beating someone by roughly 25%.
