I haven’t written much this past few weeks.
Work has been busy (but brilliant), the weekends hectic and the evenings I’d usually be writing have been replaced with boxing in preparation for my fight in a few weeks.
THREE BLOODY WEEKS TODAY, in fact. This time on March 19th I’ll have either already had my fight or be gearing up for it, with an army of friends cheering my corner.
I’ve got some of my favourite people coming to support me and they’ve assured me they’re not coming to see me lose, so even though I know it’s just banter, the pressure is on to win.
To be honest though, I’m just preparing myself mentally to actually get back in the ring and do my best, whatever that may be on the night.
It’s genuinely terrifying stuff, this boxing lark. You can be so confident and capable on the bags and pads but as soon as someone starts trying to punch you in the face it can all go to shit in the blink of a (hopefully not black) eye.
Training on the whole has been going really well….
