Fight Night

Michael has his first boxing match tonight.

Cue the Rocky theme song.

The fights begin at 7:00pm (Eastern Time). Each fight lasts 8-10 minutes. So Michael should be boxing anywhere from 8:30-9:00pm ET.

Michael raised the necessary funds and completed the required training. He survived the 1000 push-up practice. When I asked how it went, Michael simply said, “It hurt”. Here’s a video from that practice:

Michael weighed in at 166 pounds and will fight in the 168 weight bracket. There are two rings of competition and the live stream will alternate from Ring A to Ring B. Michael fights in Ring B, Match #22 against a kid named Rob Rucki. Here’s the scouting report: Michael is taller and has more reach. But his opponent is training in the Marine Corps ROTC program. Gulp.

If you want to watch the livestream, here’s the link:

I cannot believe it but I am going.

And taking our health insurance card.
