Competed in first fight last night

and LOST by decision. But I have to say that next to riding a motorcycle, nothing makes you feel more alive then getting the shit beat out of you and returning the favor back to your opponent. It was AWESOME!!!

I took this fight on 2 days notice (actually, I was forced by my trainer to take this fight ). Not to mention that I train mostly in Muay Thai and this was a boxing match. But before I start competing in Muay Thai events, my trainer wanted me to get my feet wet and compete in Boxing events first. This way I get the feel of fighting in front of a crowd and with boxing, the only thing I have to worry about are the punches whereas in Muay Thai I have to worry about punches, elbows, knees, and kicks.

Anyhoo, now I have to explain to everyone here in the office why my left eye is bruised and why the other one is bloodshot! I have another fight in February followed by my first Muay Thai fight in April. Wish me luck!!!

Yes. My fight last night was at the Carlisle right across from Yorktown mall. It was a private event, a realtor convention of all things, and we fought in front of them.

Will do Ron and I'll do the same for your races! I'm doing trackdays for the first time this year and it looks like you are a NESBA CR so hopefully you can show me a few things!

Believe me, I was a nervous wreck going into it. I wasted so much energy walking around trying to calm myself down that I was already gassed after the first round.

Nice. I may be joining there soon, as I have been looking for a place close to work I can get to around 6 or so. That is really the only place I have heard of near me that does MMA at all. I have been putting it off for a few years now because of that. Thanks for the info and nice job on the fight.
