Oh yeah, wifey was getting into it mate. She thought she'd hate it but had fun. Although she did want to cry when she saw my nose bleeding and my leg looking like a stale banana!
Whoops double post.
I haven't watched any of the other fights yet but I plan to soon. I hate sparring southpaws man, I even have trouble doing mitt work with them (I get all confused and turned around). When are you planning on getting back in the ring for a bout? You've inspired me to train harder so I can post a badass vid here as well. Even with a loss, it's just great fun to watch those big shots get thrown.
My recommendation: If you fight that leg-kicker again in a rematch, just crouch low and grab his foot so you can hold him in place and pound him.
Yeah it's a bit **** partnering with a southy, but it gives a good learning experience when you get a solid left rib kick which you're not expecting!
I hope to be back in within the next couple of months. I am going to Toronto to see my wifes family tonight and will be there for three weeks. Sadly (Or not!) I have found a gym there that has a very qualified instructor and they seem to have a good rep so I am going to head there a couple of times a week to get a feel for different partners and training techniques.
After I come back I will be training for maybe six weeks to two months to work on what I need and then will plan my next match after that.
What's your opinion on regular stance fighters switching it up to train south paw too? I was thinking it would be good to have the option of both stances, but don't want to get to into training south paw and then think I can handle it in a fight and get wasted again!
As for the leg kicky guy, I may have a slight advantage over him next time. He is due to rematch my mate in a month or so, so if I do go up against him in my next bout I will be able to get more of a detailed idea of his current techniques. This time I was oblivious to him, but now I know his style and hopefully will learn more from my mate too.
If all else fails, I'll just try and work his back leg in the first round so he thinks twice about tyring that **** agian! Bitter much! :)
