It didn't take too many occurrences of signing for a $15,000 purse and walking home with just $5,000 to sour Marcus Davis on professional boxing.

He was, he says proudly, a fighter all his life and he was going to find a way to fight one way or another.

But boxing was making him a miserable person and the man known as “The Irish Hand Grenade” finally had gotten fed up.

"I just had so many issues and problems, with management and other things, and I was in and out of court so much with all of that," Davis said. "I pretty much got tired of the dirty aspect of boxing. I'd get half — or less — of what I was promised (in a purse). I wasn't getting the fights I wanted. Things weren't going in the direction I wanted.

"After a while, I couldn't stomach it any more. It was making me sick. Literally. I had to get away from it."
