Orginal Post: zefff: How did you prepare for your first bout? How long did you have to train for it? Did you focus on holes in your game or on what you do best? Did you have knowledge on your opponent and work a gameplan to that? Did it go to plan? Did you have a specific fitness program? Did you have to lose or cut weight or did you have to develop strength? How did you deal with preparation mentally? How did you react mentally to your win or loss?

Please explain! I was offered a semi-pro contest last night but injury has put that out of the question. But I imagine it musnt be long now until I am offered another but I know my game has a lot of holes, hence a lot of questions! :)

How did you prepare for your first bout?

How long did you have to train for it?
Specifically for my first fight, I only had a two week notice. I had about 4 years of training under my belt though at the time.
Did you focus on holes in your game or on what you do best?
Personally, I just worked on basics under alot of pressure. Hands up, chin down, sprawling. That kind of thing.
Did you have knowledge on your opponent and work a gameplan to that?
No idea who I was fighting until the night of.
Did it go to plan?
n/a
Did you have a specific fitness program?
Cardio, cardio, cardio
Did you have to lose or cut weight or did you have to develop strength?
I cut about 5lbs
How did you deal with preparation mentally?
I tried to zone out and kinda emotionally detach myself from the fight.
How did you react mentally to your win or loss?
I was bouncing off the walls happy.
