My second fight , I was knocked out with the first punch! But bounced off the cage and into one of his knees which woke me up. After that I didn't do a damned thing but "hold on" for the next two rounds. I was gonzo.
Yup! It was my second fight, and it was against John Fitch who was then undefeated with something like 6 wins (not sure exactly). Haru was undefeated as well with ONE big fat win (should have retired after that so I could have said I was undefeated
Jeremy Horn was the ref for that fight and he kept asking me if i was sure I wanted to get back in the ring for the second round (my left eye was swollen shut Rocky style). I was gonna give up when Pat Miletich came running over to my corner and yelled at me to get back in there....you're a warrior, etc etc. I thought "Holy Crap now I HAVE to go back in there, so as not to disappoint one of my heroes. I went back only to get guillotined about 30 seconds later. I also found out later Pat's fighter got a "buy" in that tourney and fought Fitch later that night while he was fresh. So ol Miletich had a little plan i guess....he just wanted me to wear down Fitch as much as I could. Fitch went on to destroy Miletich's guy as well. That dude's a killer. Glad he made it to the big show finally.
