Man Endures Beatdown Whilst Filling In For Missing Fighter.
A Quick Abstract.
While boxing may well indeed be an ugly sport. Whilst competing, there can be moments of great mental clarity and epiphany like thoughts that go through your mind. (like what the fuck am I doing here)
Although this man punching me was so far out of my league in boxing terms (his original opponent didn't show up). I made the decision and stepped in to represent my University.
While I was taken out to lunch and severely beaten (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IjCtDqKVG8) I did enjoy the before mentioned feeling of mental clarity. There's something very simple about being in a fight, it's just you and your opponent. While I don't want anyone being in a fight, I do believe that if it's in a controlled environment with minimal risk of injury, you won't regret it.
