Well I haven’t posted on here in a while, but I’ve been checking in every now and then.
I’ve had some trouble lately in my boxing endeavors…
Let me start by saying that I’ve always been proud that my boxing gym encourages quite hard sparring. Proud in the sense that I believe the more realistic training is, the better the results are. Obviously however, there’s a huge difference between the 70-80% in training and the 100% full pelt on fight night, as I have learned.
The problem I’m having is, in sparring, I’m doing extremely well, especially recently, I improved drastically overnight. However when it came to fight night, I didn’t do quite so well. I won the fight, but my coach and a sort of assistant coach pointed out to me that I should’ve done much much better.
I didn’t get that nervous on the night, I controlled that quite well I thought, But I did notice in the ring I had a lack of focus, and I was all over the shop as a result.
What am I doing wrong? Or am I just overthinking this?
