BoxingBanter: ShotStevie had his first fight

I know a few will know the old BBC (5Live) member ShotStevie. Good knowledge and expert and spelling. A man from Bolton that learn't German.

 

But a fighter? He's done it.

 

13th February in a contest for charity in Bolton.

 

Before

 

"Last session before the fight of my life on Saturday. I feel nervous, but ready. Moreover, and more importantly, the difference in my punching over the last few weeks was crystal clear.

 

It's amazing how much you can tell just when hitting the pads. Had to chuckle when one of our unbeaten pro heavies who was watching started shouting "Heavyweight Steve" in friendly banter."

 

After

 

"I just ticked off a bucket-list dream of mine late this afternoon.

 

Took part in a boxing match (3 two-minute rounds) in front of a crowd. My coaches told me "he's coming for you and he's going to try and hurt you badly so bide your time, keep your guard, counter where you can - you're fitter than he is, so use it".

 

Despite having my knackers rearranged in round two (accidentally, I would say) I came away with a split decision victory. Many thanks to all who supported me (you know full well who you are).

 

I couldn't believe it. People I don't know were congratulating me on the win. Early on in round two, the crowd started being very much on my side. Sometimes, there's room for those honest underdogs who come good."

---------------------------------------

I'm sure that several that know of him will be chuffed. Great achievement.

He was also called Seelowheights - tendency to come across as a sociopath, obsessed with everything German, tended to be highly critical of people behaving in a way that didn't fit in with his binary world view. Not entirely his fault because he's on the autism spectrum, but still, a little intense.

 

He really dislikes me, if that's any recommendation :haha:
