We’re in the sport of boxing; you’re going to get hit. But it’s how you respond and body language says a lot. If you respond the right way and you come right back and you land a combination – you do something to show the judges that it wasn’t really a big punch you took and that ‘Even though he scored on me I’m still in this fight’, that’s the key. It’s very rare you can shut a guy out with the Olympic scoring system, so you’re going to get hit but what do you do when you get hit? How do you respond? And that’s the key.
