sugar water.

Dude, pretty soon you and Mohammed Ali are going to be able to have IQ competitions. The only difference is he's old and yer still a young pup. If these comps are still bare-knuckle, then you are foolish to take all this shite on. One shot without protection and it can easily be messing you up big time. Considering the chump change you are getting for these fights, it's not worth your health that you are risking. At least if there was some form of protection/rules/valid reffing, etc. No offense man, I'm sure you have great skills and instinct but there are better ways to go about it. Why not develop your talent in some legitimate fightsport and then make a name for yourself...and even some real money.

I know we've spoken on this before, but I thought you would come to realize this. Eventually yer gonna get hurt bad keeping this sh!t up, and for what, a week or two's pay if you manage to win? You are smarter than that.

Yeah and the energy rush lasts about 15 minutes before you feel even more drained than you did in the beginning.

Complex carbs for longer durations...if you have time between fights eat an orange or something. But I still feel you are retarded for doing it.

not if he sips it the entire time he's there fighting, giving him a constant sugar rate.

Pietro this is the last one im doing and it is with glvoes so stfu ;)
anyway with my injuries it would be hard to box someone(thorrasic nerve ) my jab is weak

I have the ability to make $1000 for something that comes easy so why not.
I am thankful for the fact that you care enough to share your thoughts on it but i have mounting legal and hospital fees and the risk to reward factor imo makes it a pretty good bet

Plus, fighting is fun.

gatorade. That's what it's made for.

i asked my bare-knuckle boxing bud.

what he does is low carb the first few days leading up, with lots of protein, and then does a carb-up of sorts the day before. and that's about it. the gatorade during isn't a bad idea tho.

gatorade after each fight

pasta, rice, patatoes, apples, bananas with some chicken or tuna

Good luck in the fights anyway

carrot cake - may lead to slight ingestion? so i would probably eat some thing else as ingestion is not good to fight with.

i would drink some carbs.
if you fight hard, you will loose water via sweet. this will lead to dehydrated stomach so slower abosrption. so liquids qill be better to prevent this.

Where do people underground fight? How do you get into it?

07-20-2002, 01:05 AM
I've never gotten into a fight, but I reckon I'd have to eat some fists, a few of my own teeth, some knuckle flesh.

Oh, for energy? Powerbar? ****** if I know.

07-20-2002, 01:38 AM
I'm not against fighting like this and you gotta do what you gotta do, but your mounting hospital bills don't have to do with fighting like this does it? :)

Good luck and kick some @#)(*$!!
