I guess to illustrate it I was Floyd Mayweather and he was Andre Ward. He was bigger but he was not that much slower and he knew what to do. I learned that when both are equal in terms of ability the bigger guy wins.
heart becomes a huge factor, how bad do you want it? You will grow greatly fighting guys who are tough for you to handle at this time. In time you will learn and adapt. Fighting only with guys that you are better than can leave you stale.
I've been there. A guy tears into me one day and the next day I'm there again ready to do it all again with blackeyes and the inside of my mouth all torn up. In time you will grow as I did and you will one day be fighting on even ground with these guys that USED to beat you up.
It's a tough game no doubt. Look for this cat again after your bout, learn what it is that will beat him. Obviously its not pure strength that you need. Use your eyes and use your mind to out box this guy. Spar him ever chance that you can get..........Rockin'
