Get in the ring! You are a featherweight and your opponent is a heavyweight, can you win?
Realistically never. But lets assume that if you just want to avoid being knocked out, and then land the occasional punch and you will be compensated with a good sum. Now the odds though still heavily stacked against you are slightly better.
But lets add another advantage… Your team can control the bell. So when thing look dire, they can end the round, saving you from the deck.
Maybe you can see where we are going with this analogy already… and as soon as I have time I will develop it.
