Default New too ESB, 1st fight january sometime

Hello everyone, My name is Josh and I have been reading these forums for a while now but havnt signed up until now..
I am 17 y/o, 5'10 weigh around 140 and have a big reach advantage on most people I spar with in my gym.
I have only been training for about 6 months now all together and get my first fight sometime in january..
My trainer says I have big potential and am very fast he says I fight like a ali/pacquaio.
I am quiet but very confident I will do good as a boxer..
The only concern I have so far is I have been smoking weed and ciggarettes since I was 14 and I hope it's not too late too have outstanding cardio and to be able to go 12 rounds high intensity fight
someday...I just have too quit smoking before I can think about that I think :P

My cardio isnt bad says my trainer, but I feel as if it isnt the best it can be...

Anyone have any opinions on this? would be appreciated..
Also what can I expect going into my 1st fight?
I plan on just dancing on the outside and picking him away with my fast jab
I have been doing sprints and regular runs wearing work boots to improve the cardio as of lately,..
Also any advice on other ways of improving cardio and speed would be greatly appreciated..

Thank you,
Josh

If you cant quit smoking, you are a feeble minded *****.

On the fight, dont "plan" on anything, just go in there and work.

To improve your cardio, push yourself.

HAHA...Thanks for the opinions people...
I know I CAN quit smoking...It's just a routine I have been used to doing for a few years
Quitting the weed I know will be much more of a challenge then quitting tobacco...
But just going to the gym everyday and training I know will push me to quit because I will eventually want too make my cardio the best it can be...

Its only as hard as you make it man. The less you do something, the less you want it.. Tihkn about it, when you dont eat cookies, you dont want cookies so much, than you eat one, and want to eat about 5.. The more you do something, the more you want to do it.. In example, the more consistent your roadwork is, getting the motivation to do it is much easier.
