So...what are you going to do?
Are you going to roll with the punches, or go down with the first punch and wait to be counted out?
Do you want to learn how to box to give yourself a chance in your next fight or are you not even going to bother to put your guard up and defend
There are billions of people that were thrown into this boxing ring, the majority of us have no idea how to box, but we have no choice but to learn
how to box as the fight progresses...
There are some that have a natural boxing instint, to the rest of us they seem to have no trouble in the ring, but they still have their moments of
doubt about their boxing abilities, they get hurt and take their beatings like the rest of us but they still put their guard up and continue to fight,
making the rest of us wonder how they do it...these natural boxers are here to help us, to give advice if it is asked for, they are willing to pass on
their boxing knowledge and experience, they are willing to train you, make you strong and skilful in the ring...you just need to seek them out and
....however don't blindly follow their boxing advice, use them as a guide to steer you in the right direction, develope your own fighting style, or
try different fighting styles until you find the one you are mmost comfortable with.
With every fight you have in the ring you learn something new about your boxing abilities, which hopefully makes the next fight a little
easier.....don't throw the towel in just yet, take a look at your past boxing matches in the ring...at the time it must have seemed like you
wouldn't survive the first round, but you are still here, you are still in the ring, you still have a chance to be victorious...
When your opponent seems invincible, seems to big to even try to fight, as long as you can stare him in the eye and come out fighting when the bells
rings you have already won... no matter what the result of the fight may be...
I hope your pre-fight nerves don't get the better of you, every and any person that is thrown into this ring has pre-fight nerves, they have doubts,
some show it, some don't...
Keep your gloves on...when your next fight comes up and your opponent throws a right hook your way, try to remeber how you dealt with it the last time
a right hook came your way...did you duck or bob and weave? Did it work? If not then try something else...you will learn a lot about your own boxing
abilities every time you fight, learn from your fights....before you know it you will be a better boxer and your next bout will not seem so
