Elite Fitness Fight Night 11 - When a boxer returns....

Oct 23

On Johns first outing at Elite Fitness Fight Night he joined us as a complete rookie.  He was looking for a challenge, something to focus on with an outcome at the end of it.  He trained hard and became a regular at all the training sessions, he thrived in the environment where he was pushed towards focused training especially with that Fight Night looming in the diary!  For the actual night of the fight John had 6 Ringside tables full of colleagues from Paramount Interiors and friends eager to see what he could do in the ring!  His bout was one of the best of the night, with both boxers working hard to prove themselves. 

John managed to raise over £5000 by himself for Macmillan Cancer, with his guests also being generous towards our Bright Futures sponsorship fund, he got into that ring and boxed as a first timer in front of over 350 people - so did he lose? On points: Yes, but in dignity and achievement? absolutely NOT and so we see John return to Elite Fitness Fight Night for that icing on the cake win! 

Here is what he had to say:

I am John, a 47 year old reformed semi-professional alcoholic, mild obsessive-compulsive father of two and soon to be participant in my second Elite Fitness Fight Night on 14th November.

With 3 weeks to go I am trying to balance circuit and sparring sessions at Elite Fitness with eating correctly, allowing enough time for recovery and ramping up my psychological preparation for the big night. I have picked the entrance music, decided my ‘fight name’ and got my guest list sorted, I just need to keep injury free and I will be good to go…….

I fought in Fight Night 10 in June 2014 and it was one of the biggest experiences of my life. It was a bit like making love for the first time - very exciting, very scary, over far too quickly and I can’t really remember if I was any good on the night! I lost on points in a bit of a battle but walked out with my head held high.

I feel more relaxed this time around. Whilst I am sure the emotional overload will be the same, at least I know what to expect and my advice to the first timers would be as follows;

  1. Don’t over-train in the last 2 weeks – I made this mistake – give yourself a good 3 days off before the fight.
  2. Don’t get to the venue too early, especially if you are in the second half of the programme.
  3. Start practicing a warm-up routine from a few weeks out – this will not leave you wondering what to do on the night.
  4. Remember that the fight will pass very quickly – you have to go for it from the 1st bell! 
  5. You only have to win two rounds if you are going for points – make sure you work out which two you want to win!

So there it is, the world according to John ‘The Redeemer’ Williams…….

If you are fighting on the night I wish you all the best, if you are just watching …… just be thankful you aren’t fighting!
