In that moment, observed or not by others you saw and felt, first hand what you did... and you can take pride and self respect from that.
Again, well done.
Thanks. I didn't really think about what I was doing at the time.
"You okay to continue?" Said the ref and I just instinctively said "Yeah, I'm fine." It wasn't really a thought process and it was probably stupid because I tried to block something with my dodgy wrist and it was excruciating.
Probably made it a lot worse.
Since I was 15 one bit of the bone was cracked and another bit actually bent back on itself as I was at the age where my bones hadn't completely hardened yet. I don't have a lot of gripping strength in that as a result and when I clench my first the left side of the wrist looks a lot different from the other normal one.
I do take a little pride in it but I think most fighters would have done the same as me, boxing attracts a certain type of people.
