    Up at 9am tomorrow to cut weight to 165, go weigh in then eat.

    Fights at 8.

    Fighter dropped out and apparently I'm known as "that guy" now.

    I said no until they offered me some $$.

    Its not much but I'm really concerned about going to Maryland and only having 130 to last for two weeks...

    Guys first fight, athletic but not super well trained.

    :hsd:

    Fuck him up man. Make him feel as if he chose the wrong sport.

    dont hurt him too bad. hes just trying to win like you. if you can.. give him some advantages. let him mount you a bit, compliment him during the fight. put yourself in his place.

    Its a 4lbs cut.

    It actually is sanctioned(I'm licensed in MS). But because its Am the commision doesn't have to approve match ups.

    They told the kid that I've had a bunch of fights and he doesn't care.

    Hes had 6-8 months of training.

    But I'm not gonna make any predictions :hsd:

    good luck,
    watch out though cause he might have read the "what would you do in a street fight" thread and be prepared to do awful things.

    I hope not, I have to be pretty on monday :noes:

    My mom and dad are kinda pissed that I'm taking it...but I'm seriously out of Money and I'm SO sick of borrowing money. I have a marketable skill that I can make enough to live off of until my first paycheck and I'm going to use it.

    While not in great shape I'm in OK shape. I'm bigger and better trained.

    But he's black :run:

    Seems to be my kryptonite.

    If it wasn't so cold it would be quick and I could go weigh in but its taking awhile.

    I've started just shadow boxing inside, I'm sweating more this way.

    do you have access to a gym? just layer up, sprint on a treadmill for 10 minutes then get into the sauna and do your shadow boxing

    Ok, I'm on weight(according a bathroom scale, I'm going to take my sauna suit and sweats with me though.

    Yea, I just came back to my parents house because I'm moving to Maryland tomorrow. It kinda sucks.

    Im gonna shower and leave in the next 30 min to go weigh in then get some food.

    I may not have video soon, might have to wait for the DVD. MY GF and her digi vid cam are in Oxford still :(

    ps, The New Britney Album /IS/ good.
