Use Your Head

No matter who you ask in boxing, they will likely tell you that the sport is as much about mental toughness as it is physical ability.  Teddy Atlas has always said that, “Boxing is 75 percent mental and 25 percent physical.”  Former Jr. Welterweight champion, Devon Alexander says similarly “I think boxing is definitely 80 percent mental and the rest physical.”  Many boxing experts, coaches and trainers believe that it’s more of a 90/10 split, but no matter how far you tip the scales the point is…what’s in your head matters – a lot!
