Default Re: got cranked w/ a body shot today.

I leaned over and I felt I couldn't breath. Lucklily he stopped for a second and I got back up. But I felt like I was going to throw up. It happened again w/ another body shot in the next round and after that I felt like I was gonna collapse.

My question is should this be happening? Do I need to work harder on ab work or road work? Or is it I just need to improve my defense?
More ab work wont help as much as getting hit in the stomach, or dropping the good old medicine ball on your stomach everyday.
