When do some of the fighters in here start training for an amateur bout and how many days a week, and when do you start to ease off.
My last fight i felt weak and all burnt out from overtraining. i trained for around 6 weeks for my national titles and didnt feel as fit as i should've been and actually came in under weight.

i think of the time before a fight like a hour-glass.
I train real hard then i take it down and as the fight gets closer i bring it back up.but I have heard andre ward trains really hard then slowley tapers down until the fight
