You seem to know me pretty well for having never met me

I don't wear anything on my sleeve. All of the fights I've been in were because some idiot put 2 and 2 together and felt he needed to stand up for his "manhood". But here's a better question, who cares if someone "wears" their homo***uality on their sleeve (whatever the hell that's suppose to mean), does that give you a right to harass them either verbally or physically? I don't get offended when I see a 5'8" white kid with a do-rag acting like he grew up in the slums off 8-mile.

3 fights in 4 months and you don't even know how to fight? Maybe you should direct your energies at avoiding fights in the first place...
What?

I can fight, just not well. Simply getting into fights isn't going to make you a good fighter, the same way moving chess pieces randomly on a chessboard isn't going to make you a grandmaster.

IMO by 1 year with plenty of sparring to get used to punches being thrown at you, good fitness, overall strength and powerful accurate punches, most people should be capable of dropping your average joe fairly easily. Its the streets though, you never know what their gonna pull of who they are.
Awesome, this is what I was looking for. I'm going to head over to my local boxing club tomorrow and I'll post what I find out.
