Default First fight is in 3 days.

In the regional golden gloves tournament, and I must say.. I'm nervous as shit. I did very well in sparring the other day, but am nervous that I can't repeat that same performance. Gahh, I'm just blabbering because of the nerves. Any advice would be great

First fight at the golden gloves?

Around here you need 10+ fight or a silver gloves win.

Good luck. Don't go crazy and burn yourself out is the best thing I can tell you. We had a show yesterday and like 11 guys/girls made their debuts, and that was the biggest thing I noticed. Kids go nuts from the adrenaline and throw everything they have, gassing themselves out halfway through the fight.

Don't forget to hit him in the body either

If you remember 10% of what you did in the gym you're good. Don't think about it too much, just get it out of the way. If you did your preparation in the gym, there isn't much you can do any more.

best of luck first fight is always crazy for nerves, i had my first fight at 16 and i think its better to have it long before that age, a younger version of me might not have been so anxious, what age are you??

the hardest part you will find is trying to control your nerves, hopefully you put a lot of work into your training because you are going to burn up a lot of energy during the prefight hours and you will tire quicker, try drinking an energy drink 30 mins before lucozade or one of those incase you have burned up alot of energy

when you get to the venue try stay relaxed, concentrating on breathing properly, visualise yourself leaving the ring victorious and the feeling you will have when leaving the ring, anxiety is a cunt dont let it get to you

I'm 17 right now, turning 18 next month. Hey off topic question, the sides of my nose seemed to have widened, as if it were swelling but it's been like that for a week. Is there a way I can fix that, or am I just screwed? haha

Courage is doing what you're afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you're scared.

Best wishes for a fine performance
