Can you CHOKE in Boxing ?
No, not choke in the MMA sense of the word, Choke as in the lose your bottle sense of the word
There are plenty of examples of huge chokes in sports history. Jana Novotna's choke against Steffi Graf comes to mind.
Choking usually happens in sports where you have time to think about what is going on and what is on the line, you are in a winning position and lose from choking
Serving at match point for a Grand Slam title
a Free throw in the NBA finals for the title
a shot at the 9ball in Pool in the World champs
A 4 foot putt in a Grand Slam tournament in Golf
A penalty to win the World Cup in soccer
So the question is, can you choke in Boxing ? Boxing is a continuous physical and reactive sport, at no point in time do you have say 20 seconds to think about throwing a particular punch and know if you land the punch, you win the fight. Doesn't work like that
I think you can underperform from pressure in boxing, but not sure you can choke
what do you think ?
If you think you can choke in Boxing, please give some examples

I think if anything, it's Golota versus Bowe 2.

lol Oscar De La Hoya..
Had numerous amounts of fights in his hands, and he just shuts down. And you know he's good enough, cause he stayed attacking Sturms body and shoe shinning for 12 rounds i think. lol But a fight he's winning, he'll stop throwing. Or he'll come into a 147 pound fight where he hasnt fought at in years at exactly 147
