Default College Fight Night

My friend recently got me interested in boxing, he's been going to a gym since the beginning of the semester and says the trainers are really good.

Fight night for my college is scheduled for April 12th. The weigh-in is scheduled for March 30. Don't ask me why there is such a long break, if anything this will help me.

I'm 6'4, ecto body type, weigh 193lbs, and have no boxing experience. I have been bulking and lifting for the past 3 months. I haven't used calipers but based on my body type and a BMI scale i'de say my body fat is around 20%. I know for a fact that I could drop 10 pounds through adjusting my diet alone, and more once I begin cardio. The weight I need to get is 177 for weigh-in. I think I could do this.

I think the fights consist of 3, 1 minute rounds. This doesn't seem very long to me and I can see some juiced out frat guy going balls to the wall every round. I'm not the strongest guy, but I think, through training, I could out endure them. However, with such short round times I'm concerned about getting knocked the **** out.

Anyways, 4 months of boxing training, would I stand a decent chance? Have any of you attended a college fight night before? Do most ppl just flail their arms aimlessly?

Thanks guys..

any huge guy can come in throwing wide hooks, but if you know how to move around the ring and stick the jab, you could probly go a whole fight without even getting touched.

The mere fact that there's almost two weeks between weigh in and fight time, says it all. Don't participate in that.

well i just looked at some of the photos. The fighters dont look very good and they arent even wearing boxing shoes. Id say 4 months you could get yourself in decent shape and get down the basics - probably enough to beat most of those guys there.

Weight divisions are as follows:
106lbs-131lbs, variance of 8lbs
132lbs-177lbs, variance of 10lbs
178lbs-201lbs, variance of 15lbs
Over 201lbs no limit


Great stuff. Good luck on your new toughman contest career. That **** ain't boxing...

Ah what the hell, I say go do it. It will be an experience you will remember for a long time, especially since it looks like they get a pretty big crowd out to watch it. Since there are only 3, 1 minute rounds, I say the safety risks are pretty minimal, and don't worry about some "juiced out frat boy".

If you do find yourself in over your head, just do a bit of holding and keep your hands up, chin down.

The only slight concern would be that the questionairres don't seem to ask if there is any previous fighting experience. So you concern shouldn't be about some juiced out frat boy, it should be that you might have to fight an actual amateur fighter with fighting experience on 4 months experience.

In theory if you started today trained at least five days out of the week with a reputable trainer and have some talent you could be ready for a legit match. Thats a rarity at best. However if youi did train with a reputable trainer you would soon come to realize that crap isn't for a real boxer. I would rate it even under toughman contests. Also if you did train "properly" your trainer would frown upon that type of nonsense as much as I do. Not to mention if you had real instruction you would want better competition than that. You are not going to prove anything to yourself or others by participating. If a reputable trainer found out you was training for this he'd probably throw you out of his gym. I would. If you love boxing, there is a better way to go about it. If you just want to fight, "get a life"

WTF!
minimal risks, do you have an idea of how many people have died under the toughman competition's 3 one min rnd platform?? It's the exact same criteria. You don't know the other guys experience, Don't know what the hell you are doing. And are pumped by the crowd. recipe for disaster if you ask me. **** I coiuld walk into that cometition, If I were to get my hands on an unexperienced fighter There is a good chance He wouldn't walk out of the ring i wouldn't need the first min of the first round. I despise these mockeries of the sport and this is one of few combative contests I would support an outright ban. on

yeah, like I said, the one major concern I would have is whether or not there is any screening to make sure that experienced fighters aren't being allowed in the competition, because then that would be trouble.

It does seem to be certified by the state amateur boxing organization, so I assume they would be preventing that. **** I dunno, maybe your right.
