Anyhow keep your head up man in all reality I think you should have not been put in such a big event your first time out, you should have been in the gym much longer than what you were in the gym for IMO I can only bag your trainer for this I just do not believe any good trainer would have rushed you into a show in a little over three months
Hi man thanks for your reply, lol nah I was not in a tourny, it was a amatuer night of boxing at Cambridge Uni (one of the best globally) and all the students came, im sure there is thousands of Uni students on campus on the night so 400 is quite little. Its a big event they hold every year where there Uni boxers fight club boxers, my club was invited. I respect your opinion about my coaches decision, I think I may have been slightly shy of being prepared to fight but im glad I did as it has really given me a reality check early on, as to how hard I need to work. I was doing great before, now ive had a taste for competitive boxing im sure im going to start doing even better.
