Re: My first fight
My first fight many years ago brought me a good bit of anxiety, not about facing my opponent, but doing so in front of so many people. After the first couple of blows landed, I forgot about all the people and it was nothing more than an intense sparring session.
Point being, don't let distractions get in the way of how you do in the ring before even climbing between the ropes. Try to relax since all that nervousness can sap some energy from you.
Good luck this Sunday.
Oh, and I got a UD for my efforts.
