We live in a world where fame and popularity has taken over almost every field. Be it fashion, Hollywood, politics or sports; there is no person in the planet who doesn’t know the shining stars of these fields. In sports, particularly boxing is making quite a buzz in the news. Boxing has introduced the world with some of the greatest athletes like Yahu Blackwell. Boxers are dedicated athletes and have won many medals and awards for their nation. Usually, people admire the way they earn huge amount of money by playing a sport. However, it is a known fact that many NBA players are broke within five years of their retirement.
Yahu Blackwell, an American Cruiser-weight boxer, has decided that he would not meet with the same tragic end that some of the NBA players have dealt with. He has planned to invest his money in various sectors so that even after he takes retirement, he would earn a lump sum amount of money. He has said in one of his interviews that he would like to earn more money outside the ring than in it. The boxer has heavily invested in the stock market and has been involved in creating a mobile gaming app. He has also, invested in urban communities. However, Yahu Blackwell is particularly excited about investing in the franchising business. He has recently invested in purchasing the franchise of Rita’s Italian Ice which is a renowned Italian ice restaurant chain.
The first location of Blackwell’s restaurant will open in summer 2018. He is quite excited about this project and there is no denying in the fact that this will mark the beginning of Blackwell’s franchising business. This extremely talented boxer, who is known for his high IQ in the ring, says that he doesn’t only want to be the richest athlete of Baltimore, but he also wants to get recognized for his business skills. He doesn’t want to end up like 60% of the former NBA players, broke and lost, but he wants to secure his and his family’s future and thus, invests in all the fields most athletes would never think about.
