Night of Boxing

Davis is in blue gloves
  Truth be told, I am not a fan of boxing!  The nausea started about 3 in the afternoon.  I assumed it would subside right after his bout, which was the 2nd one, thank goodness.  However, it actually continued until after I got home.  I not only didn't  enjoy seeing my child in the ring, but all of the others as well.  I turned into Mama bear mode for all those kids.  And watching the girls was worse. 

But the good news is D took the fight with a TKO in the 3rd round.  There were 3 1 minute rounds with 1 minute rest in between.  I was really concerned after the first round, but he got serious after that.  I think the first round he may have been in shock.  I am proud of him in a weird sort of way, but really would prefer not to do it again.  My deep hope is that we are at the end of his boxing career.  But if he wants to do it again, I suppose I would support him, nausea and all!  It was good for him in the training sense, and I believe really pushed him to go beyond what he thought he could do.( I love that feeling) 

Good Things:
1.  bucket lists (that is a one time thing right?!)
2.  sense of accomplishment
3.  no permanent damage

Pat his personal boxing trainer
I just have to note, it was so difficult to get any picture during the fight.  Low light, with a spotlight, no flash, quick movement...nightmare!
