In boxing, once that opening bell rings, there’s no turning back. You can change strategy. You can choose to dig in and create a new outcome, but the only way out is to finish the fight. You can go out on your back, out on your feet or by doing the unthinkable (quitting), but there has to be a conclusion. You can’t take a break from the action or call a time-out to reassess. The fight must go on.
