Then I got put in with a skinny Lebanese kid. I was laughing because we looked like a before and after Atlas ad. The first 2 rounds I went hard and he was mostly relaxed and waiting for me to gas, which I did. Then the room went up and down a few times, then there was a searing bright light in my eyes.

As it turned out, he was hitting me with uppercuts, and I was flat on my back looking at the ceiling lights. Welcome to boxing.

I never fell Got close though but I never showed in my face it hurt me... whenever they would do that to me... I just unleash hard strong uppercuts to their nose(eyes watery painful) and some huge hooks.. to have them calm down.. I was the slow pace, timing and counter punching I loved controlling the pace.. and slowing down my opponent and have him think.. I loved counter punching it's so fun making the other miss and hitting them for messing up...
