Talking Do you get nervous while watching a huge fight?!

Especially when it's involving big names like Cotto, Floyd, Manny. I was really excited and nervous as hell during the Floyd-Mosely fight, I was like "Oh shit I can't believe this fight is really happening" lol.

When Mosley rocked Floyd my heart was thumping. I was thinking "Oh Christ, this could be it"

i can't even describe what it's like during fight week. once i see that the fighters have made their grand arrivals at the casino, it's on. i almost want to restrain from *** with my gf until after the fight.

Depends on who's fighting, how much I like the fighter, and how much I trust in their skills.

I was nervous as hell watching the first two and a half rounds of Cotto-Pacquiao. After 1st knockdown, my nerves vanished. Even though Cotto managed a little rally, I knew it was a wrap for him.

Yea, for big fights I do get nervous, and when Hatton fought I was a nervous wreck and for whole fight week that would be the only thing on my mind and I would just have postive thoughts lol, but I do have excitment and nervous going on for big fights. Like for this year, Kessler-Froch, Escalante-Roman, Mayweather-Mosley, Adamek-Arreola, and Ward-Green. I think those are the only fights, but after round 3 my excitement was shot to shit when Green was fighting like shit yet again against a good/great opponent.

For me, it heightens the excitement if I view it like a PASS/FAIL test i.e. the fighter I pick either wins or loses. Of course if I trash talk it and/or put $ on it, the rush when I win is exponential. This may or may not sound like a future candidate for Gamblers Anonymous, but oh well.

I remember how nervous i was when Morales switched to southpaw against pacquiao..I knew he was already older in that fight..didnt think he was gonna win..and he had the fight won and all of a sudden he pulled that shit..i stood up and was basically in shock..the commentators were goin nuts..

That and when floyd fought hatton..i hated hatton thought he had a good chance to win it..the insane audience goin for ricky just thundered every time he connected..man i was nervous for that..

I always trusted Trinidad when he was on top so i wasn't really ever nervous, just excited and in fight mode.

but yeah now Pacquiao makes me nervous for the first 1 or 2 rounds always these day, and then well... we all know what happens after that.
