To outsiders, fighting will either seem like a kick-arse, glamorous occupation or a very violent slug fest.
You’re ready to step into the ring. You’ve trained hard for a number of weeks. You’ve done everything right, prepared well and it’s fight time. You’re finally facing your opponent in the ring, the bell goes and you’re off. You fight hard, emptying the tank in every round. When the fight ends, they announce the winner but it’s not your name that’s called out – it’s your opponent.
