    ya know it's funny, I downloaded 5 different videos of Ramon Dekkers fights and he lost every single one of them. So in my experience, Ramon Dekkers' actual record is 0-5.

    I'm going with option B.

    Originally me and a friend of mine were both going to fight at the same 'event'. But after he got destroyed twice during sparring, the coach suggested that he should wait a while until he tried competeing. I took this oportunity to ask if he though I should perhaps wait a few months as well. He told me again that he thought I could do just fine and that I should compete. I'm hoping he's right.

    I sparred again thursday, and I really tried working my combos. This left me open for many more counter shots than I had taken when I was more cautious. However I was able to control the pace of the fight much better than normal. When I spar again today, hopefully I'll be able to tighten my defenses a little. Also I was just able to completely close my jaw again yesterday after nearly a week, I hope that ability doesnt' leave me again tonight ;) Its good incentive to keep my hands up.

    Quick update. Fight has been postponed to the 30th. Sucks that I can't invite my friends to watch for free. I have to sell them tickets. They're like 20 bucks each! That seems quite expensive to me.

    so you're going to fight, for free, while completely unprepared for the fight, and you aren't even getting comped tickets? why exactly are you taking this fight?

    Hm, maybe you don't know this but no amatuer fighter gets paid. And I'm certainly not totally unprepared for this fight. I have been training for a few months. And this is my opponents first fight as well. I'm fighting for the sake of the experience of fighting, like any amateur fighter does.

    what kind of fucking rip off show doesnt give the fighters a few free tickets? that is some class A bullshit there.

    I still think a couple of months is way too short. you better hope your opponent is as inexperienced as you are (which I doubt if his trainer has any smarts)

    Have you considered to actually like, learn how to fight, before you jump into one?
