The lads and lasses at the gym will use this space to right up their thoughts on fight prep....events etc..... should be useful for aspiring fighters....
First entry comes from Lee Ryan Adams Carter after his first ever fight and victory.
" When I started my training 5 months ago the last thing Iexpected was for me to be standing in a cage 6 feet away from a man who wantednothing more than to rip my head from my shoulders, however I had been given anopportunity to test my skills in front of around 200 alcohol fuelled fight fansand I soon realised that the hardest part is to control the nerves as the cagedoor is mercilessly closed behind you, the nerves and the people watchingbecame a distant memory as my opponent came rushing at me, they had beenreplaced by a determination to not surrender, to not give in and to win thatfight no matter what. The thing that pushed me on through the fight when Ithought I had nothing left to give, when I had completely gassed was thethought of “this is my moment and I’m not letting this man take it away fromme, I’m here to win and I’m not gonna accept anything less”. To hear my namecalled at the end was unbelievable I had given everything I had, id laid it allon the line and to win after doing all that was a fantastic feeling, I felttruly alive at that point and on top of the world, and I can’t wait to fightagain it’s a rush that I cant describe in words the only way to trulyunderstand what I’m trying to say is to step inside that cage yourself."
