    I only felt this emotion in the week leading upto my first bout. I unfortunately lost...I was 11 years old and let the nerves get the better of me...I also found out later on that I was in with a kid who already had 5-6 bouts. It's ok though, I fought him again about 5-6 years later and beat him in the ABA's by a wide margin.

    I was the same as Gilly, it took me a good 10 bouts to settle down, after that I can honestly say I never got nervous for a bout anymore...I know they say a little bit of nerves can help you out...but I never used to, can't explain it! :huh

    First fight was was 9 months into training, 3 months into sparring at age 13. Had no idea if I was any good or not, but suspected not. Plus all I knew how to do was to jab. That's all my trainer taught me. Refused to teach me anything else.

    The fight was at a casino in the states against a local 2 yrs older and heavier in front of 1000+ people who essentially cheered like mad for him, and boo'd me. :?

    Was never more scared in my life. Wanted to run the hell out of there, ceptin is was about 7 hrs driving and maybe 3 days running on foot back to the border. So had to fight I guess. :lol:

    I used all I knew, was taught, and basically jabbed the guys face off. I had a few inches in reach so every time he stepped in wildly I just jabbed him, over, and over, and over..

    By the time the fight ended I had won over some supporters cuz people were chanting..."go red! atta be red!" and I was in complete lala land and still kinda miffed i got boo'd so badly. I shouted out to the crowd of over 1000 partially to mostly drunk people, current and ex-soldiers and their families..."Yea....Go Canada! Fuk the USA!" :twisted: (everyone on our team trying to shush me)

    It was Veteran's Day.

    My dad and grandparents said we were lucky to make it out of there alive. :rofl

    A huge defining moment and one of the greatest feelings in my life. I've won a national title since and it paled in comparison to how great this felt.

    I won on a countback, lad had had 3 fights, was at superheavy, he was quite slow I just used a simple 1-2 all night sometimes throwing a left hook and pivoting away from him. I thought I won clearly but it was at his home show so the judging was slightly biased.
