Wait for No One


There’s nothing more frustrating than watching your favorite boxer getting outworked by a lesser opponent or urging your own fighter on in-between rounds, only to be forced to sit by and watch him falling one step behind while the minutes of each round tick away.  All the while, his adversary is letting his hands fly and piling up points.  There isn’t always one, common reason this happens to a fighter, but in some instances, he can become inactive or ineffective by getting wrapped up in the idea of landing THE PERFECT PUNCH.  In this case, that doesn’t particularly mean looking for a well-timed, one punch knockout, but just the idea of getting singularly-focused on the thought that a punch has to land in a designated spot, at an exact time or in a very specific way.  Just like in life, in the boxing ring, sometimes opportunities are presented, but more often they are created.  And not created by waiting, but by taking action.
