Thread: What to eat before a fight?

  1. #1

    Default What to eat before a fight?

    For some reason my laptop will not let me search this website for previous threads. I have a an amateur boxing match on Saturday and as its my first i dont have much idea what to eat. I will have a bout 3 hours after weigh in before a fight. So what should i eat today and tomorrow?

    Cheers for the help guys.

    I think you mean hypoglycaemia. If you suffer from it you'll know. It's not as common as some people will have you believe, in fact it's pretty uncommon.
