Gents and ladies, some advice if you will. I've practice muay thai for about a year and a half now. I've sparred plenty, though not much lately, and I've fought once on an in house card, around 3 months ago. Due to holidays, the flu, the leafs playing decent hockey and other shitty excuses, I've not hit the gym hard In a long while. I'm around 15-20 pounds from where I like to fight.
My former opponent was set to fight on friday at the in house event, but his opponent dropped out. They are now asking me to step in. No pressure, but the opportunity is there.
I'm torn. I know I shouldn't fight, but the only reason I train is for the journey and the fun. I have no delusions of being a pro.
Most levelheaded non-MMA fans have advised me to turn the fight down. And stop acting a fool.
Anyone have any advice? I keep changing my mind every 1/2 hour.
