We think what it may be is my gloves don't have white knuckles and the judges have trouble scoring them. But I'm in much better shape now, and sparring a super heavyweight and someone who is going to the Olympic Trials for the USA, and my defense has improved a lot. I have a tournament in two weeks, and afte I win that I might have another national tournament in October. We'll see how well my skills are working when I win the Ringside tournament, if they're still not all there I might hold off on the tournament in October. How about you? Are you still Super Heavy, or are you at 91kg now? If you want to get amateur fights a bit more you should try coming to the US for a little bit.
yes, the guy recieved standing 8 counts and he looked stunned to me, my brother also think you got robbed of the decision. thats a shame but the most important thing is that you, yourself, know you won the fight. thats great that you get such good sparring and i wish you the best of luck in your upcoming tournament, i think you have the right attitude for winning, but buy yourself a pair of white knuckled gloves so you don't get snitched again.
i am also in great shape right now, im off from training for two weeks now though but i am honestly in the best shape i've ever been in right now. i just gets stronger and stronger and better, i've been working out like hell this year and last year, i am 91 kg now, i am much better at this weight, i actually punch much harder, faster and more precise now than i did when i was 95 or 96 kg, my stamina is better and im actually stronger and bigger physically now although im 5 kg lighter. i keep my weight at around 91 kg all the time now but i can't eat as much as i want. i feel very hungry for winning. i can fight 90 kg guys or 110 kg guys, it doesn't really matter to me.
are you going to record your fights at the upcoming tournament? if so i would love to watch them and see your development. what weightclass are you fighting in right now?
