What Is Boxing?
“To answer this question correctly, I’ll first tell you what Boxing isn’t. It’s not about getting angry or “duking-it-out” with an opponent to get even or to hurt him even though it is, to a small extent, that. After all what fighter isn’t in this game to win or to defeat his opponent? But it’s more, much more than that. Boxing is a sport predominately about a concept rarely, if ever, heard known as “disciplined aggression.”
Fighters don’t fight out of emotion but rather out of the highest degree of confidence, skill, talent and instinct. Also, they fight out of something called heart, which is a combination of willpower, grit and determination. In my opinion, of all of these attributes, the two most important are skill and heart. The reasoning behind this is obvious: If one doesn’t have the skill, then he’s simply in the wrong game. More important, however, is “heart.” After all, if a fighter can’t push himself mentally, if he can’t take it to a higher level in the toughest of times during a fight, regardless of his skill level, he’ll never amount to anything in this sport. And that has been proven time and time again in the careers of many well known fighters.
When one views boxing in the same context as one views the game of chess, you’ll have a better idea of what I’m talking about. What prevents a highly skilled competitor from trying to impose his will on his opponent is his awareness that his ( opponent ) has the same tools of the trade as he. Granted, the opponent is well conditioned, trained and powerful with knock out power in either hand. But the key ingredient that many people overlook is the simple fact that he has a brain, a mind that is trying to outthink, outsmart you. In short, the opponent is trying to take you out of your game plan in order to defeat you. Similarly, the same holds true for the greatest chess players.
Boxing, then, takes on a different face and becomes a sport about creating opportunities, capitalizing on mistakes and taking advantage of situations as they unfold before the fighter.”
