Coach Ian – Week in Review 04/04/2021:
Book I’m Reading
Atomic Habits – James Clear
A Special Gift:
Over Christmas, Kathy made this to remember all of the races I’ve run over the years. It’s been a long time since I’ve run an official race and this just motivates me to get after another full marathon in the second half of this year!
Post of the Week:
Audiobooks: I shared 36 audiobooks I’ve recommendations of boxing, running, nutrition, health, and business books.
Run Streak and Running Goals:
Progress: As of 4/4/21, I’ve now run 388 miles for the year, while maintaining my 94-day run streak.
Keyshawn Davis vs Richman Ashelley: This is really early for a fighter with 1 fight to step up against a (10-1) fighter, with 9 KO’s and 1 DQ loss, in a six rounder. Well Keyshawn made easy work of Richman, picking his spots around and through his high guard and countering whenever Richman ever did decide to engage. Keep an eye out on Keyshawn.
Jamel Herring vs Carl Frampton: Congrats to Jamel Herring on his win over Carl Frampton. Jamel Herring appeared to be too big for Carl Frampton, with a noticeable height and reach advantage over Frampton. Herring dropped him in the 5th and finished the job with a beautiful uppercut in the 6th round, before putting together a barrage of punches to score the stoppage.
After the stoppage, Carl Frampton was class as usual. He announced his retirement and expressed his desire to spend more time with his family. He said “Boxing’s been good to me. It’s also been bad to me.” Ouch. Anyone who’s participated in the sport knows the amount of sacrifice and dedication you have to have to succeed. Fighters are often separated from their families during training camps. They say “boxing is a lonely sport” because fighters have to give up much of their social lives and dedicate themselves fully to the sport. Fans complain about fighters, but don’t understand how tough of a living it is to make. Carl Frampton left it all in the ring. I’m glad to see him have his priorities straight and know when to hang em up. Congrats on an incredible career.
