Don't Forget Your Cardio
Yesterday I talked about speed over power. If you have to fight in match that lasts 9 or 12 rounds, endurance is the most important attribute. After 4 or 5 rounds you won't be able to rely on brute power. I've seen guys with seemingly we punching power knocked out stronger opponents in later rounds. It looks like they are just tapping their opponent and all of a sudden that fall out. Accumulation of punishment will sneak up on you. If you've ever watched UFC fighter Nick Diaz fight, you've seen him through what looks like a lot of slapping punches and then all of sudden, the opponents falls. So, with all of that said, don't forget to build your endurance. Hit that bag, spar, skip rope, shadow box, and run.
