musrt be 10 or 11 yrs ago.
i was in a pretty small club and was one of the tougher lads there includin the older more experienced fighters and the coach loved that about me. he would have me sparring lads way bigger and stronger than me. i didnt mind either...... til THAT night.
i always prided myself on my flat strong stomach and was always willing to trade body shot for body shot with the bigger lads.
then big george landed a sharp left hook into my ribs. it knocked the wind right outta me. i was nearly sick and all. i couldnt breath for the rest of the night. i ended up tring to do a few rounds skipping while the lads all done their end of session floor work because i couldnt do it. i was very embarrassed that night.
and if im honest george didnt throw full power in that shot i dont think. it was just punch perfect.
