In the next area what we’re going to do is
to make sure we try to get your boxer to relax, and you as the coach needs to relax, also,
because if you’re nervous, if you show that you’re nervous, then he’s going to be nervous.
So we’re trying to get the boxer to relax. Sometimes the boxer will actually be trying
to look at the other opponent. The boxer will be trying to concentrate on looking beyond
you at the other opponent, so you want to get him to focus on just you. We’re going
to try to get the boxer to breathe. We’re going to try to get the boxer to lean back
a little bit, maybe outstretch his legs. But the biggest thing is to get that boxer to
relax, and also both coaches should be relaxed. It is an exciting time, but we want everybody
to relax. We’ve only got one minute to work this boxer, so the sooner you get relaxed,
the sooner you can get back out there and get right back into the fight. That’s good.
