Realize that it doesn't matter what they think since your the one actually doing it and not them. I never really had a fear of being in front of the crowd while boxing my fear was the guy trying to knock my head off. After you start fighting you will forget the crowds even there

Once you get in the ring you won't even notice them.

Mike Tyson was always very nervous before a fight. He said, once he actually stepped foot in a ring - he would forget about his surroundings. It's just you and your opponent in the ring, remember that bro.

I know how ya feel man, I am going to have my first fight in a couple months and the events they have at my gym usually have like 200 people which is tough for me because I'm not great at public speaking or being in front of a huge crowd.

The best way is just to get in there and do it. When doing something risky or something that makes you nervous, don't think too much about it, just put your foot down and get in there.

You have to pretend that you're not nervous. The best way to do this is to design an elaborate ring entrance, something similiar to what you'd expect from Prince Naseem. It doesn't matter if it's just a small crowd of ten people, you should still have music playing and dance your way to the ring. Or buy a large carpet, drape it over a flat square of wood and have four friends carry you to the ring on it, so it looks like you're riding a magic carpet.
