"I knew Enzo Calzaghe forcing me to have that Pie and Chips and Can was a ****ing stupid idea"

It be a great avatar pic.

Bunce

I notice your currently online.

Can you tell us - exactly what Enzo had to eat and drink ? when you interviewed him outside that hot dog stand in Wales - in the build up to the Haye fight.

Was his diet shoddy all along the training camp ?

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 ?

You forgot groin guard.

Hatton used to have the big fry up on the morning of the fight - 'me head's not right if I don't'

Truth be told it makes no difference once the leather starts flying

Alex Ariza is known to give pacman a "shot" of pure steak and kidney pie around an hour before fight time.Courtney Shand swore that an IV drip of jerk beef pie gave Lennox mad skills. The problem was not the pie it was the delivery method. Mainlined pies are rocket fuel for serious athletes

Have the words "Hatton" "pre-fight" "big-mac" been mentioned?

First of all that is extremely unprofessional of the guy and his team, shows that they lack knowledge about nutrition as well. If he wasn't used to that sort of food the effect would be even worse. The immediate sugar hit from the dr pepper and chips would've caused his insulin levels to spike dramatically, one hour after consuming that food he would be feeling lethargic. He would also be right in the middle of digesting that fatty pie which would also affect his energy levels. One hour before for something like that is too close to the performance, why the hell hadn't he and/or his team had his pre fight meal arranged? As I said, completely unprofessional. And stupid.
