My opponent also has practiced to death to butcher me, but it is not about hate. After the match, what’ll be left is respect as we’ve fought each other well.

While you are losing weight, as it is right before a match, while most boxers do think about the match, losing weight itself should be usually tougher. It’ll become a battle with yourself, without saying. You pass the test for your weight, eat and the nutrition taken will make your brain start to work again. For me, I tend to have a headache, I do have one if not congestive brain failure. Once it is sedated, I will start to concentrate somehow, or my mind will be dominated with the coming match like a flashback, then haunted with fear. My opponent also has practiced to death to butcher me, but it is not about hate. After the match, what’ll be left is respect as we’ve fought each other well.

To overcome the fear just takes daily practices. When I have finished practicing, passed the test for weight, and am right before the match tomorrow, I am haunted with fear and can’t even sleep.

To overcome the fear just takes daily practices. When I have finished practicing, passed the test for weight, and am right before the match tomorrow, I am haunted with fear and can’t even sleep, where I would work out lightly to make sure my feeling, but I can’t do so right away. I have to keep moving, in the state of being cooled down, Once I have passed the test, with fatigue healed, I take meals, can sense my “good” movement, and I still may go to the match as I am to just lose, which should be avoided. Then, when I go to bed, thinking I will warm up tomorrow again, the fear against the match will advent again, which has to be suppressed while making sure that I can move. Both positive and negative waves will come. Which should be normal for most people, right? Even when you are determined, you’ll be “at a loss” over this or that. You’ve experienced that mentality, too, right? It should be normal for anyone.

My dad wouldn’t change what he had once determined on. His spiritual power was indeed great, which I have probably inherited. I remember that my dad, since we were in Okayama, told me that he would “make me a world champ”, where in reality he’s done so.

For so-called parents, there are no definite notions that “these parents have got such a policy; those have such and such”, right? My dad can’t be just compared to other parents. Everyone is different, as I am, too. One thing I can definitely say, however, is that I recall I didn’t have mom. It was a single-father family. That’s it. I didn’t see any single-father families around, while I did some single-mother ones. My dad wouldn’t change what he had once determined on. His spiritual power was indeed great, which I have probably inherited. I remember that my dad, since we were in Okayama, told me that he would “make me a world champ”, where in reality he’s done so. With good conditions such as a good training gym named “Osaka Teiken” (Osaka Imperial Boxing) and its able trainers, I have become a champion, but my original is my dad. That I have been actually taught by my dad and I can still play means for the presence of my dad, I am of Tatsuyoshi (blood). I’ve even eaten his bones, for I wanted him to stay with me forever. If you eat bones, you’ll be part of that someone, right? Not just being part, I will live together with him. As far as I am living, my dad thus won’t die. It was hot, as it was just right after being burned up in his funeral, as I got even burns on my tongue and upper lip. Its inside was rather empty, nonetheless being hot. For that, I’ll be serious on everything, as I don’t want to make any excuses to my dad.

What I am a bit concerned about is the last one for Rocky. While I myself never have come to think that way, I do understand, or while I do not belong to such world of revenge, it has been impressive nonetheless that the world of boxing also has such results and feelings.

My dad loved difficult books I couldn’t have read. Some, easier to understand, however, became a movie, such as *“Yaju Shisubeshi”, a hit movie originally from a book; *“Yatsuhaka Mura” has been based on a real story in Okayama. Movies I watch depend on timing. For example, when a match is made or I am getting close to the day of the match, I often watch *“Rocky” series.
