Do you have bad dreams about any fights/fighters? Or recurring boxing dreams of any other kind?

    You know you're watching too much boxing when you're dreaming about Vicente Rondon.

    I've had a couple of dreams where I've fought Floyd Mayweather. In my dreams, I'm a tall, rangy fighter with good footwork and reflexes that's winning the fight with the jab. Mayweather is super hard to hit, but has trouble mounting any kind of offense of his own.

    For whatever reason, I've also had a few dreams about a Mayweather / Zab Judah rematch where Mayweather hunts down and dominates the hell out of Judah from the start.

    As for bad dreams, I had a real disturbing dream once about Ali where he was beaten in the ring with bars of soap, like Gomer Pyle in Full Metal Jacket. The dream ends with him lying alone in a dark, empty ring, crying in pain.

    If I dream about Drago, I hope it's about Ludmilla Drago instead of Ivan Drago.

    I'd often wondered whether you got PTSD from your fight with Dempsey. Now I know.

    Back in 1995 I had obtained tickets for my father and me to the annual Boxing Writers' Awards and dinner program in New York City at which time George Foreman was to receive the Fighter of the Year award for regaining the heavyweight championship ttwenty years after losing it. If I had the chance, I wanted to tell him that he was the finest example I knew of "if any man be in Christ he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."(2 Corinthians 5:17) The night before the event I had a dream that I started to tell the champ that, and my father was stricken with some kind of serious attack as he stood nearby. I woke up badly shaken and the dream seemed so real that it was several minutes before I realized that it was only a dream. So now, what do I do with this? I told my father about the dream and we prayed about it. We decided to go ahead and say what I wanted to say while we prayed for protection for dad. I had my chance to speak to the champ just as we started dinner, and he chuckled and said "Thank you, that's very kind of you to tell me that." He gave me an autograph and even struck a fighting pose for my camera. And dad was not stricken at all. Later both of us were photographed with the heavyweight champion. Truly a night to remember!

    So funny yet you know so little at 5ft2.5 and 106lbs you’d have to wonder how much power I can produce relative to my size? though I’d say being muscle bound has never effected me and if I had to say if I was a bodybuilder I’d be successful I do have a good V taper so I’ve gotta ask how many middleweights do you see punching half as good as the “little guys” I hate the name, “little guys” yeah because Khaosai Galaxy was small I’m actually bigger tbh in terms of density maybe not appearance but yeah most middleweights are all shoulders and arms sad stuff that people idolise them as the “blend” of good boxing traits when it belongs to the featherweights

    In my 20s when I was training 5 days a week I would commonly wake up to the sound of the speed bag. I was practicing on it as I slept I saw the variations of my wrist angles and on which part of the fist hit the bag as part of the dream.

    I would throw punches a lot when sleeping. Twice I hit my wife by accident in the arm.

    I would dream about street fights. Particularly being confronted by other people as I progressed in my training and my self belief increased the dreams changed from me being scared to be winning and hurting these people. I would think just like a spar even though it was a full on dream I would slip see openings and connect with real power. Then I stopped having them because when they started I would say to myself in the dream the average person hasn’t trained for 15 years what are you afraid of and the dream would shift to non boxing things .
