I quite often get a headache after McDonalds etc. Not much nutrition in it. Can't be good for an athlete in the toughest sport.

He lived on a decent diet throughout the weeks of training - (except for a few packets of monster munch everyday that he burned off in training) -

But on the day of the fight - more specifically the night of the fight..........

Lets just say the fighter - had not ate for hours - and the fight was approaching.

He leaves his hotel.

And climbs into the passenger seat of his trainers vauxhall people carrier.

the trainers son and his girlfriend are in the back seat - catching a free lift to the arena too - and to provide moral support - and look after the training bag in the back seat with the

gumshield
bandages
pads (to warm up)
shorts
boots
spare boxing gloves -
water bottle
first aid kit

the clock is ticking - there is just about a hour to go until MC Jimmy Lennon Jnr annoucnes the fighters location and name to the world in front of TV Cameras and a World wide TV Audience which will signal the fighters music then coming on and the cue for fighter is due to make his ring walk.

Just 1 hour away...............

As they set off - in this Vauxhall People -carrier - its now gone Midnight.

A conversation takes place - in the front eat - between trainer and fighter about ............

"feeling a bit peckish" - and "needing to get the energy levels up"

So they make the fateful decsion - of making a little D-Tour until they find a late night chip shop still open..............

They pull up and the trainers goes inside - and the trainer orders some stuff for himself - and for his fighter he orders...........

Steak and Kideny Pie
Meedium Chips
330ml Can of Dr Pepper

The next 10 minutes in the front seat - is spent scoffing and burping as the fighter - consumes his greasy meal..................he then slings the wrapper out the window because they are in such a rush to get to the arena on time.

Once in the arena - they quickly park up - get in the changing room and get changed and warm up on the pads...............

Before you know it - its time to fight.

But how would that greasy meal - consumed less than a hour before the fight - effect the fighters performance ?
It would leave them bloated and lethargic, effecting their overall performance in the ring. If you gorged a few hours before the fight it could give you stomach cramps aswell

Can I get something straight though, did enzo actually eat that before the fight or is there some kind of long running joke I'm missing?

He ate it.

Both Enzos did.

Its was one of the mistakes Enzo referred to looking back at the fight.

& think of all the salt they pile onto the chips in the chippy, instant dehydration. Would take more than a can of tizer to combat the salt alone, before we even start talking about the chips & pie & if Enzo had licked the wrapper as sometimes a hungry bloke can do when theres sauce on it, tongue hoovering up even more deadly salt before tossing it out of the motor= a recipe for disaster if you ask me...

Check yourself.........

Google Key Words like : Enzo Maccarinelli Calzaghe Mickeys Fish Chip Bar London Vauxhall People Carrier Haye Fight.

I've never seen anything on the internet myself.

But I know many people around the South Wales area - who hear things - straight from the people themselves.

Its not the kind of excuse you openly shout about - because you look like a sore loser because it might sound quite silly to the public - like Haye and his sore toe.

It could have been the two pickled eggs that were the 'tipping point'.

It would give him a quick burst of power, a blast of energy, a usain bolt of quckness to help him KO his opponent(unconfirmed rumours have Breidis Prescott tucking into a haddock supper with gravy and extra tartar sauce, using a wooden spoon so as not to dirty his hand wraps barely 60minuts before dispatching amir khan.)
problem is, enzo wasted the energy hurtling towards the ring like a big welsh/Italian oadrunner, determined to set a new british record for the 60 yard dash.

Probaly stress mate.

Couped up in the hotel all day - knowing the hours are ticking down until the biggest fight of your life.

I think people tend to lose their appetite when they got worry on their mind.

Then panick at the last minute - realising he needs some hot tucker down his neck to boost the energy levels back up.

Yeah good shout. Just shocked Enzo's was very professional after losing to Swaby. Always gel'd his hair like a true pro.
