All my life I've never been really a social person, and somebody who competed in much of anything in school. So, I never played any sports, ran track, not even something like band. Anyways though, I workout like crazy, and want to be a boxer. I have an obsession with trying to make my body *perfect*, and don't think I could ever be seriously pleased with myself.
Anyways though, I met this guy who's like 86, still in great health, and used to be a pro boxer. SO, he wanted to train me. For the last 2 months or so I've been training with him practically every day.
I've been very happy with my progress, and am getting confidence. He wants to RUSH me in to things to much though that he thinks I'm ready for...maybe physichally I'm ready for, but mentally I'm not. Like first day I'm over at the boxing gym I spar with this dude that won golden gloves 4 times. My weight, but leagues ahead of me, and he didn't take it incredibly easy on me. Then, he has me spar with this guy who's 190 when I only weigh 150.....He didn't take it easy on me (almost breaks my nose LOL). I've sparred with a couple of regular people lately, and did well, but he wants me to have a match the 2nd of next month! Like not even 2 weeks a way...I've sparred a total of 4 times, and expects me to debut without me being mentally ready for it.
I ended up messing up my shoulder really bad though while lifting, and won't be able to do it anyways, but I had a question, and wanted to see what everyone else thinks for once I'm able to fight.
I'm a nice guy...In one way I want to compete, and prove something, but in another way I don't want to hurt anybody or anybodies dreams. How can you possibly step in a ring, beat the crap outta somebody (while there family watches, etc), and then be very pleased with what you've done? Guess I could look at it as they took the risk, they were trying to do the same to me, pray for there health, etc...But not sure how I'll react once i'm in the situation. Just seeing how other people think they would react.
