    Default Your Personal Emotional High's and Low's Within Boxing ......

    On the the back of Valero's death, this got me thinking a little. I enjoyed watching Valero, as did most boxing fans, and as sad as his situation was, I can't honestly say that it was a personal emotional low in my boxing life, more a shock. It was obviously very bad news for everyone involved, but because Valero hadnt really left a mark on me emotionally as a fighter, I guess it's one that hasnt left a real personal emotional scar.

    For every true fight fan, there have been times throughout our lives that we have been ridiculously elated with certain results, situations etc, and also times when we have felt as sick as parrot with lock-jaw. I just wondered what are everyones top 3 personal highs and lows to date ?

    - Personal High's -

    1.- Hatton's win over Tszyu

    I guess this would have to rank as the highest point in my own boxing life. To see someone I'd followed, then became friends with, realise his dream in front of his home fans on that magical night in Manchester will take some beating. I dont think I have ever felt so happy, proud, relieved or ecstatic as I did on that night. We partied for days and I was high as a kite on pure emotion for days afterwards. The fact I was there to watch it live certainly added to everything.

    2. - Oscar's win over Vargas

    With all the bad-blood that preceded this fight, and with Oscar being one of my all-time favourite fighters, this has to be number 2 for me. The way he dispatched of Vargas that night was clinical and extremely satisfying. Staying up until the early hours just to watch the fight on T.V, and all the emotions I felt during the fight made it all the more special at the end. I remember trying to sleep after the fight and just couldnt, I was buzzing like a bee with a vibrator up its ass.

    3. - Meeting Hatton and Duran

    I guess this will have to be my 3rd choice, it's not often you get to meet two of your own personals idols in one night. This was the first time Duran had ever set foot on these shores, and it was also the first time I was introduced to Ricky. It was a fantastic night that paved the way for our future friendship. The best Boxing Dinner I have ever attended, topped off by our taxi ride back to the hotel which involved picking up Ken Buchanan. Priceless.

    - Personal Low's -

    1. Hatton getting laid cold by Manny

    Easily the biggest low of my boxing life to date. I felt sick to my stomach before the fight and even worse after it. One of the most brutal KO's you could ever see, and against your favourite fighter. I walked out of the MGM Grand and walked all the way back down the strip to the Wynn in a haze. I got into my hotel room, took a valium ordered a Pizza and went to sleep. Saturday night in Vegas and I was in bed. That alone says it all. Devastated. I didnt expect Rick to win the fight, and I was half expecting the worst, but I never expected that.

    2. Oscar's loss to Manny

    This was extremely hard to watch, and I think every punch Manny threw seemed to hurt me more than it did Oscar. To see your hero, past his sell by date, getting beaten up so badly, was horrific viewing. A massive low for me, and something I wish I'd never seen.

    3. Benn's loss to Watson

    Benn was a huge idol of mine when I was younger, and the defeat to Watson was the first time I shed a boxing tear. I never thought Watson could hand my hero his first loss in such decisive fashion. I was gutted for days afterwards, much in the same way I was when Tyson lost to Douglas, a myth shattered, and it hurt.

    I can actually think of so many more low's than high's that I could have added. I know this cant be the case, maybe you just remember the bad times more than you do the good ??

    Either way, what's everybody else's personal High's and Low's in boxing ?

    Some people say boxing is a matter of life or death, it's not, it's far more important than that.

    Great thread.

    Personal highs

    1/ Mosley knocking out Margarito.
    Im a massive Mosley fan but coming into the fight even I had doubts that he could win let alone knock Margo out in such a devastating fashion. The way Margarito walked through Cottos punches i thought he was gunna do the same to Mosley.

    2/ Mosley knocking out big mouth Mayweather and giving him his first loss.
    Ok so it aint happened yet but only just under 12 days till it does

    Personal lows

    1/ Mayweather knocking hatton out. Coming into the fight I was sure Hatton had the pressure fighting style to beat Floyd and to see him knocked out by the ring post left me gutted for weeks.

    2/ Cotto taking such a beating from Margarito, it still kills me everytime I watch the fight after Cotto boxed so beautifully for the half of the fight but only to get such a beat down in the later rounds. His swollen and bloody face after the fight with his kids crying in the crowd was hard to take.

    Highs

    Calzaghe beating Lacy everyone thought Lacy was the second coming of Mike Tyson and he just got whooped for 12 rounds.

    Calzaghe beating B-Hop that cheating bastard had shouting at the tv i was totally unsure of the outcome but when Joe's hand was raised i was in hysterics!

    Oscar De La Hoya beating Julio Cesar Chavez i saw it as many did like passing of the torch and how dominant Oscar was it just got jumping up and down!

    Low's

    Ricky Hatton losing to Pacquiao i really thought it was going to be a simple night for the Hitman and had made a bet on the fight i dont know what was worse!

    Cotto losing to Margarito he started so well then it just seem'd to go down hill i just couldnt believe he lost.

    Edwin Valero's death i was a fan and i just cant believe it it all happened so quick i was really looking forward to seeing him in with some of the best i just know it would have brought out the best in him, guess we will never know.

    Personal Highs

    Hopkins dominating Pavlik. Although i thought Hopkins would win, i had my doubts about his ability to fight at a elite level for 12 rounds against a pressure fighter with very good power like Pavlik. I couldn't of been happier with his performance that night.

    Bradley beating Witter. This was before i was really a fan of Bradley but i was seriously rooting for him because i couldn't stand Witter and i didn't like the fact he was totally looking past Bradley. Bradley put on a good performance, outsmarting Witter, dropping him and taking a decision win. One judge scored it for Witter, i don't know what that judge was watching.

    Personal Lows

    Margarito beating Cotto. To put it simply, Margarito battered Cotto into quitting. Cotto's face was a mess, his family was in tears. It's hard to watch one of your favourite fighters get beat up like that.

    Mayweather beating Marquez. I wish Marquez never took this fight because although it made him big bucks, it shattered his chances of getting a third Pacquiao fight. Marquez had every stacked against him and on the night it was all there to be seen. Mayweather was stronger, bigger, faster and simply put.......better. Marquez looked totally confused in there. I hope he bounces back in his next fight.

    Lows:
    1. Wlad's losses to Sanders and especially Brewster...vs Brewster I saw Wlad throw everything at the guy and then just get to the point where he couldn't even keep his hands up. I said "It's over, he's done". I never thought he'd be able to recover.

    2. Miguel Cotto's losses to Pacquiao and Margarito...the guy is just ALL heart and for him to get beat down like those are just hard to watch when you're pulling for the guy getting beat up.

    3. RJJ's losses to Tarver and Glen Johnson. I was actually able to feel good about Glen Johnson because he's a class act. Tarver is just a giant piece of shit!

    Highs:
    1. Wlad vs Sam Peter, the guy everyone thought was finished fought through adversity (3 knockdowns), never complained about the punches to the back of the head, and he showed composure in that fight. He's been great ever since.

    2. Seeing my friends from the gym have pro matches and do very well. Yeah it's cheesy but North Carolina ain't exactly boxing central and it was good to see those guys do well.

    3. My first ever sparring session, I've never really been in real fights before #1 I am a very friendly guy #2 I guess people never wanted to fight me and #3 I never went looking for trouble. I was very nervous but I did well and landed some decent punches....later in my sparring I made one of my opponents miss me with 7 or so consecutive punches and being as big as I am people should note I'm not exactly Pernell Whittaker either.

    Emotional high:

    First sanctioned amateur boxing match. Had no idea if I was any good, but suspected I wasn't. Was fighting in a casino in the USA in front of 1000+ people against a local, who was 2 yrs older and heavier with more experience...and got boo'd real hard walkin to the ring. Almost ran out of the place i ws so scared. I boxed his damn face off and shut the crowd up. It was my 13th birthday. That was my greatest high.

    Have gone undefeated since, 2 provincial titles, in novice and open class, then recently National Open Class Champion. But that still pales in comparison to my first match on the emotional high level.

    Emotional low:

    It's been a long series of lows in increments since joining the online boxing community. Due mostly to learning how shady, ugly and dishonest the highest levels of this sport have been, and currently are.

    Highs:
    - Sitting ringside for OLH-Bredahl & Toney-Littles, JLC-Corrales 1, Izzy-Rafa I & III, Martinez-Bunema, CQ-Paul I... Among others.
    - Having met so many legends Lopez, ODLH, PBF, SSM, Danny Lopez, Emile, Norris, Yaqui Lopez, Chacon, Carlos Ortiz not to metion Barrera, JMM, Erik Morales and Pacquiao. Along with loads more.
    - Getting my glove signed by Pacquiao, JMM and MAB. I have yet to get Erik to sign it but now that he's back in the circuit I might be able to get it done without having to travel to TJ where he promotes fight cards.
    - As for fights go; Morales beats MAB, Morales beats Pac, MAB beats Naz, ODLH beats Vargas, JMM vs Pac I & II, JCC beats Camacho, Baldomir beats Zab, Nonito beats Vic, Lopez beats Alvarez I.


    Lows:
    - The recent deaths in boxing but I have to say Alexis death hit me hard.
    - Margarito plaster
    - Panchito Bojado turns out to be a bust.
    - Finding out about Resto-Collins.
    - As far as fights go; Cottos loses mainly Pacs as I don't account for the loss to Margarito, ODLH losing to SSM, JCC losing to ODLH, Andrade getting robbed vs. Bute, Erik losing to Pac, Kessler losing to Joe, Vitali losing to Lennox, Kats losing to Casa, Cazares losing to Ivan.

    Here's some that quickly came to mind...
