Jonathan, Teddy, SEC discussed on THE FIGHT with Teddy Atlas


And when you perform, sometimes when you perform in the stream, heat, you get tired faster. You don't put you don't punch his heart, or you don't go out the opponent as much. But once a year, once the heat, once you used to the heat, it's like a regular day to you now. Yes. And you can fire. You can fight your fight. You don't have to focus on the heat. Now you focus on your opponent. Makes sense. You know, so that the heat was like, it was just, it was something it was the first thing you had to overcome. And once you overcame that, everything else, everything else. It was just what they were called. It was just great in his waiting for you after that. Teddy, can I jump in here for one sec? Yeah, sure. I have some thoughts on the heat and heat training. I'm a competitive runner, Jonathan. And in running, they would always say that he and humidity is the poor man's altitude. And I would argue having trained it altitude and trained in the intense heat I live in Nashville. I'm running 90 to a hundred miles a week that the heat actually, when you get into a cooler climate, I feel is more of a benefit having trained in the heat than training it altitude when you get in that comfortable climate on Fight Night or race day. So I think that there's a lot of benefits to training in that heat. And like you said, if you can be comfortable being uncomfortable in that heat when you're out of it, it's like it's like you have another set of lungs. For me, at least, and it makes you focus on all the little things like staying hydrated, recovering, because if you don't, and you go back for another day after you lost ten, 15 pounds in the gym, you aren't going to be able to perform if you haven't done all the little things right. Exactly. Thank you, teddy. No, no problem. I'm glad you brought that up. In other words, I always talk Jonathan about this business. We understand the physicality of the talent. We understand that. But I always talk about it being 75% mental. Would you concur with that? And before you even answer it, a lot of people need to remember, you were a hell of a fighter. You yourself, you were really a good fighter. Yeah, you won. You were good, solid, technical, complete, fighter. And at Cruiserweight cruiser light, I really cruise, I believe, but as boxing 75 percent mental. I agree with you on that. I think it's 75% of men. I believe that. Once you realize all your obstacles are behind you and the only one is in front of you is your opponent. That makes it very easy. Yes. Because when we talk about the hotness in the gym, that was the obstacle, a lot of guys had to overcome. And once they overcame that, at that time, a lot of these big fights that was going on, they leaving from the basement, and they going over to Caesar's palace in Vegas. And fighting outside. Yes. That was a stream he and plus they had the TV lives. It made it even hotter. So therefore, they didn't that's the obstacle. They didn't have to worry about them. Because they were so used to fighting in the heat where they only had a focus on their opponent. So that was a mental obstacle that they overcame. And now they only got to focus on their opponents. So I a 100% agree with you. Learning to be learning to become comfortable in an uncomfortable and violent. Yes. That's all world. That's the world of the prize fighter. And golovkin's first fight with Canelo, Jonathan. He pressed the action. In the rematch, he boxed more. You know, as much as you can tell us, what his strategy and his third fight. Honestly, I'm looking at him and boxing them, yep. And impression him at the same time. Because I don't, I'm looking at, I'm very every night
