My advice to you is to remember that writing an article doesn't mean laying out every single detail that occurs - just the more notable ones. For instance, someone might write "Chavez keeps coming forward" or "Chavez took the shot and responded" or some variation of that in each round when a simple "The more punches he ate, the more emboldened he became" could simply cover his actions for several rounds and not just one. Not sure if that makes sense. Just keep in mind the "flow" of the fight rather than play-by-play. So you actually can enjoy the fight while covering it. Also keep in mind that the atmosphere of the crowd and other notable things should be factored in. If it's a fight that will be on TV later you can always find those missing details--just enjoy it, take note of things that stand out and write it while it's still fresh in your head. That will also give you more time to edit.
