Default just woke up to see reality

im a undefeated amateur here in MA. golden gloves and everything just won my last fight by knockout in the 3rd. Train at Haglers old gym. robbie sims, haglers brother was there the other day nd we sparred. this man in his late 40's completely out classed me. i knew he beat roberto duran back in the day but i thought he would be a shell of his former shelf. boy was i wrong. just had 2 let that out lol

Woke up to what reality? A VERY experienced pro put an amatuer in his place. Shit happens. Top pros have been put in their place by amateurs.

You are undefeated which is good. Robbie just showed how far you got to be until you are a world champ!

Man.. It would have been weird if you would have beaten him.. He has crazy amount of skill couse he's been in the game longer than you. Don't let that get to you.

My trainer was no more than 135 lbs, had done way too many fights to even remember, could hardly talk properly and went through a packet of smokes a day. And he was old. That guy could still fight.

yeah realty hits hard , you have to ask yourself who have you fought that was remotely on his level and with his experience.. the most experience you find at a Golden Gloves tournament is maybe 15 fights at best. no where near world class level which what sims was.
