The pressure of knowing that his hypothetical promoter was going to quit the sport if he lost must have been more than he could hypothetically bear.

He was out boozing - just a few hours before he was due in the ring with Swaby. He came in the ring - still hung over and slightly pissed..................

It seems Enzo has a history of eating or drinking too close to some of his fights.

And there are quotes on the internet to confirm this.

I would have thought there might have been a few packs of Monster Munch stashed away in the people carrier. These would have come in handy on fight day, providing regular energy top ups without feeling bloated.

The idea of finding that wretched chippy will haunt Enzo for ever, which needn't have happened considering all the bits of storage space those Zafiras have. The glove compartment would have easily taken a multi pack on its own.

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 makes large amounts of blood rush to you're ****.

Causing blood pooling in you're ****.

I guess we can't be talking about Enzo Mac here.

I have it on very good authority (bloke with staring eyes that I met in the car park at Magor services) that in mid-January 2008 Enzo Mac and Enzo Calzaghe had a massive row on the forecourt of Bridgend Ford that was so heated it must surely rank as the biggest fight of Enzo Mac's life.

Enzo M was gobsmacked by the quality of the S-Max show car interior in comparison with the low-rent Zafira that he had been used to. Big Mac really appreciated the oddments storage areas, just perfect for stashing your can of Tizer, bag of Monster Munch and Brylcreem. The glovebox too impressed, cavernous enough so you could not only transport your Pie & Chips, but you could also get a fishcake and a couple of saveloys inside, probably.

It took Bradley Price and Joe Calzaghe to convince Enzo Mac to climb back in the Zafira so that Enzo C could drive him home. With the fight against Haye at this point only a couple of months away - it was an early sign that all was not right in the Maccarinelli camp. Enzo C tried to make it up to the big man by popping into Fforestfach Tesco to treat the lads to a Ginsters cheese'n'onion pastie and a krispy kreme each. Shortly afterwards, when he dropped Enzo Mac off, Bradley noticed that Enzo M had wiped a bogy on the back of Enzo C's seat in the Zafira. With hindsight we can see it would take more than just junk food to get the big man back to his best.

hmm there a few other factors to consider. If he was to eat that meal then do something short and exerting before the food had settled properly like a short dash to somewhere important it could well affect the unnamed persons performance.

Also as it is a fight and there would be alot of illumination if the fighter was subject to unexpected levels of dim lighting in the events preceeding the fight that could also cause an issue. Was there some issue with lightining before the fight or on the way there??? something as small as a broken light could make a huge difference on the outcome.

Indigestion and some sort of night-blindness issue.

Sounds extremely plausible.

Especially since I remember reading something about the headlamp failure on the Zafira. Sadly the 2000 model doesn't have the warning sign on the dashboard for this issue.
