Default nervous energy before the fight

ok you know on fight night, when you get there everybody just don't start fighting. you have to weigh in, wait your turn to fight and all that other crap. so it might take 2 or 3 hours before you fight. ok here goes the example we get to the event we weigh in and all that good stuff. now i'm waiting to fight all while i'm waiting for my turn to fight i got butterflies in my stomach, my under arm are sweating, i'm kinda shaky. i'm trying to psyc myself up because i know who ever i'm fighting ain't about to just kick my ass so why i'm so nervous.i'm finally on deck next to fight and i see who i'm fighting. i seen him warm up earlier hitting the pads and i knew i could take him. bells rings and i can't seem to miss him with the 1-2 cause he's comming right at me about half way thru the round i realize i'm more tired then normal and i'm really gonna be tired in the last round if i'm feelin like this. so i open up with a 1 -2 and finish it with a uppercut the ref gave him a 8 count if i could have hit him one time the fight would have been over, i ran out of time. 2nd round i was pot shotting i clearly won them first two rounds. but at the end of 2 round clearly im gas, but coach good at motivating u in the corner like finding ways thats lite a fire under u " u want to lose in front of your family" and the people in the other corner i hear them talking about i'm tired shoot i been tired since the first round. coach said do what you did the second round. yea i tried that but could not keep it up so i just sort of traded with him. that was the closet round. i won fight pretty easy but he caught me a couple times. being nervous for that long kilt my stamina. cause i can do five round easy in the gym. HOW DO YOUR DEAL WITH BE NERVOUS

Sounds to me you should train harder. That will boost your confidence. Meditation and breathing exercises helps to keep focus. And how many fights have you had? It's really very normal to get nervous in the beginning.

Im guessing you just forgot about your breathing. So maybe next time just really focus on breathing (through your nose) and dont hold your breath or anything. When you 'panic' you hold it unconciously. I do it sometimes when I get swarmed in a corner. Just remember to keep your cool. As for your family and friends watching. My family doesnt come, they could care less, but I always have like 10 friends (besides the boxing team) there. I always lecture them (so to speak) before hand not to come up to me till after the fight and not to scream out my name or anything like that. I personally like to be focused and can get distracted easily.

This is where roadwork comes in. I also feel the same way no matter how hard I trained. I guess its just normal.

This is pretty good. Don't worry about winning too much, I think you're putting too much pressure on yourself to win or take your opponent out. Go in to your next fight without caring about winning or losing. Pick something you want to improve on and do that.

Yeah, that's actually a pretty good routine. With just 4 fights and only being 18 years old you have lots of time to learn and develop. I think the nervouseness(?) will disappear when you get some more fights. And like Amy said, don't worry about winning. Just do your best, and as long as you improve, can you really ask for more?

It will do you a tremendous amount of good to give up on that mind set. Of course, we all want to win, and when we're in there we do everything we can to win. But at this point, the pressure of winning is holding you back. If had a few losses that I'm far more proud of and gained more from than several of my wins. I never to into a fight without a goal other than winning. I'm not in the gym just to win, I'm there to be the best boxer I can be and often times you grow and learn more from a loss. Winning doesn't not always = good, or the best.

nerves are natural m8
your opponent has them 2
you just need to stay relaxed
take your mind off the fight a bit by reading a book
then about 15 minutes before get focused

I don't know about you guys, but the warm up makes me very focused. Before I start to warm up I regularly just want to get in there and get it done, but afterwards I'm calm and relaxed.
