Default Re: How much does emotion affect a fighter?

If a fighter harness the emotion and use it to fuel his desire to win, yeah that's what Douglas did.

If a fighter is driven by his emotion, expecially anger, he will lose his focus instead.

Once, there was a superbantam champ named Jaime Garza, who was 40-0, 38 ko's. His challenger was Juan "Kid" Meza who actually went to the champion, who was enjoying a meal at that time, and told him it will be his last.

Come fight time, the enraged Garza tore through Meza and scored a knockdown. However, his wildness and over-eagerness would prove to be his undoing. Meza countered him and scored a comeback KO in the very first round.
