It also makes unbeaten fighters that much harder to beat because their mind dont know what its like to lose and they feel invincible , boxing is a mental game more than anything else .
I agree, Undefeated fighters have an innate advantage..and being that boxing is as much a mental game as it is physical..this can be devestating to fighters who actually possess the skill to beat these undefeated but lose on the mental front before they even enter the ring. Good post.
