yep i'm sure you'll feel better this time. I totally understand why people wouldn't want to pile on the extra pressure, maybe that would be better for me. If anything for my last fight I was too fired up for it and over excited by the whole occasion, I got a bit too mad keen in getting involved in a war when I should've used my other strengths more than I let him use his. My gameplan A was always to box box box but it is difficult to keep a lid on it. I'm sure I'll get to winning ways soon. I've adjusted my style and gone back to basics which I think will improve me no end.

not much advise you can tell someone. In your first fight it all goes out the window.
