Default Re: Examples of not being properly warmed up

What happens frequently in boxing (and, I guess other combat sports) there can be a lapse in mental? preparedness. There is a very sharp break between the normal world, with it's peaceful habits, even sparring hard, and a real head to head with another person trying, as hard as they can, to debilitate you. This can take a short time, even (I understand) for a pro fighter to adapt to. When a fighter is not yet in their 'fighting mind' - seems to be when they're most likely to receive those KO/TKO 1s.

That's my understanding of the 'caught cold', 'not properly warmed up' etc judgements. More of a mental rather than physical state. The adrenaline's not properly kicked in, still ad******g mentally to what is ultimately a very extreme situation. This is perhaps the riskiest moment of a fight and often determines the outcome.

edit; Ad******g !!! they better not !!! Ad - fukin - just - ting. How the fkin fuk can ad-jus-fukin-sting be auto censored.

I'm formin a fukin union with MMJ - the fukin **bull****ers**

Oh, for all those with delicate ears, the terrifying word I typed was A-D-J-U-S-T-I-N-G. Now, I'm both a old evil ******* and quite inventive with language, but even I can't find a particularly unpleasant use for it. Ah... the Name in the middle letters! Well Fuk. I don't even know anyone called fukin J'stin, but I'll warn him if ever do that his very fukin name is a sin...
A very long reply but you are wrong.
