I can only imagine that feeling. But it's that experience that helps some fighters find a new gear, a whole new potential to tap into that they never realized they had.
Just one of the many things that make this sport so facinating.

yep the great ones have that will to win that seperates them from good solid fighters who crumble under pressure

I love it when a fighter comes into the ring just knowing they're gonna win.. So arrogant and then they get beat down....

Two fights come to mind..

1. James Toney Vs Michael Nunn
2. Antonio Demarco Vs Edwin Valero

Uhh, Demarco was far from looking arrogant and sure of his victory. The guy looked nervous as ****, kissing all his family members. He never comes in all happy-go-lucky like that, he was obviously nervous and tried to deal with it in that manner.

Just like clottey coming out to the pacquiao fight dancing his way to the ring. So out of character and obvious that they're anxious.

No kidding.... He's got so much talent in the ring if you're not an elite fighter hes gonna potshot you to death and if you're a danger he will just shoulder block you and outpoint you. I watched the Gatti fight a couple weeks ago. It was like Floyd was beating an infant.
