You don't have to knock anyone out to win a fight. Most of the time all you have to do is make it to the end without your opponent landing a major hit or knocking you down. So if you're so scared of losing and taking a few hits then by all means, play it safe. However, know this: “He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.” Sure, eventually someone will land a solid hook and may even knock your lights out, but what good is being a fighter if you don't ever know what it feels like to take a hit? Get out there and start putting some heart behind it. You're here for one reason and one reason only: to win. Fists up, head down, and keep your eye on the prize. [Ryan Nimmo]
