i never eat too close to fights, ill have a light breakfast before i weigh in (unless im having problems with weight), then a big lunch (pasta) with a sports drink and maybe a bit of ice cream or yoghurt

then nothing but water and maybe a few lollies/piece of fruit before i get into the ring

mars bar, half an hour before the fight, then just water till go time. Have your last meal (something carbish, pasta or the like) about 3-4 hours before the fight. Dont worry too much about food, your body has enough energy for a hard 3 rounder (4 if your open class) as long as you've been training right. good luck let us know how it goes

I was told pasta, mars bars and bannans. Personally i like to drink a can of red bull before a fight!

A quart of guacamole. With your hands to make them tough.

After I weigh in I usually eat some pasta, drink a bottle of OJ fairly quickly, and untill my fight rehydrate on some gatorade/powerade.

If its something like fruit it takes 30 minutes for your body to get access to the energy. If theres a decent amount of protein about 90 minutes. Im not sure about refined and processed stuff like mars bars and ice cream though, id guess somewhere in between.

Bannana's are very good for potasium(Spelling) which will help with cramping and what not as well.

I eat fruits (oranges,apples,bannannas,grapes,watermelon, etc) I usually eat a small amout, cuz i hate feeling too full.

anything with Carbs, like Pasta for example would be a great pre fight meal, remember Carbs = ENERGY!
