In this interview with Fox Sports Radio, Herschel Walker reveals that he’s giving his proceeds from fighting to charity. I guess that rules out that he’s doing it for the money. He says he just wants to compete because he loves it.
“It’s not about the money. I love the sport. Love to compete. And for all the old guys who don’t think that they can do it anymore, I’m living proof if you get your butt off the couch and start working out, you can do it. It ain’t gonna fall out of the sky and hit you on the head, you gotta do something about it…It’s not a gimmick. I’m here for the real thing. I’m here to show that I can fight.”
