Boxing is a sport.
I don't follow it, but I've watched a little of it. From what I understand, you're not allowed to beat someone in the head and possibly kill them. The ref would put a stop to it, and you might find yourself ousted from the ring, or even banned entirely. And of course, if you really kill someone in the ring, you might find yourself in trouble with the law.
I think you should give it a try, but go through a real gym and learn all the rules and strategies from an experienced boxing trainer. Boxing is not just a question of "fighting for money." It's a sport and you have to learn how to play it.
Also, I think that you might discover that you won't make that much money by the time you join the gym, hire the trainer, retain a lawyer, etc. etc. Any sport takes a lot of money to learn and practice, and it takes a long time for that investment to pay off in earnings.
Since you're strong and fit, perhaps you would have more luck and make more money doing work that requires physical strength; e.g., road crew, construction, hired hand, moving furniture, etc. If you specifically want to use your strength for God's work, consider joining a mission where you build orphanages, schools, etc. in poor countries.
If you have an education, you could probably make money on the side working as a personal trainer for fat, flabby people like me! I'm paying a trainer $45/hour to help me flatten my stomach.
Yeah, I'm training to become an accountant and I was considering training people in the office after work haha :) I already help people in the gym and friends with a lot of advice with my 8 years experience.
