“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”  - Winston Churchill In boxing and in life, you either win or you learn. Learning from your mistakes forms the basis for all future success. How we react to failure is what comes to define our lives. Everyone reacts differently to losing and everyone at some stage of their life will lose. There is no right way to feel after a tough loss. Loss can be hard. Loss can be emotional, causing you to feel inadequate or ashamed. Loss can destabilise you mentally and challenge your identity, as you confront so ..read more

Could Fewer Rounds Be The Key To Professional Boxing’s Future?   Professional boxing may’ve just witnessed the greatest heavyweight fight in over 20 years, resulting in Oleksandr Usyk unifying all belts to become the first undisputed heavyweight champion in the four-belt era. The scale of this event and the excitement surrounding it is what typifies a worldwide attraction to the sport of boxing. But there are still legitimate concerns over the future of boxing.  My Top-3 The integrity of the professional game is being eroded by the rise and popularity of exhibition fights The f ..read more

On February 25th 1989 Mike Tyson faced the legendary British doyen of boxing - Frank Bruno, at the Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas - the entertainment capital of the world. This was an occasion of magnitude beyond anything I’d experienced as a 7-year old. It was the first time that I was allowed to stay up past 9pm - thanks Dad.    This was my first brush with two grown men battling to overpower the other. This was a global event of heavyweight show business, punctuated by glamour, athletes of mythical prowess and visceral magnetism. Seeing it as I remember it, the only thing that could take ..read more

Is there ever a better time to improve our physical regime than when we’re feeling grief, heartbreak or rejection. Training to strengthen ourselves physically feels like the best anecdote to our mental and emotional vulnerability. We can control our physical choices, even if our hearts and minds have been impacted by events beyond our control. Working on our fitness feels like we’re building resolve and expressing our intent physically to overcome emotional sensitivities.   In boxing as in life, we can take a hit - to give two back. Nothing says resilience more than boxing; the existentia ..read more

KNOW YOURSELF
REAL | Power of One

Amongst all the inspirational quotes and posters displayed at my first gym, was a short phrase, hand-written on the wall in felt-pen that simply said “Know Yourself’. This small decree hit home larger than any other motivational message. When your skill or your will meets resistance that’s when you find out how much you’re prepared to tolerate.    Rocky Bilbao once said:   “It aint’ about how hard you can hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forwards”   We’re all going to get hit, no matter how fast, fit, clever or rich we may be. But in boxing as in lif ..read more

DO MORE FOR YOURSELF - SO YOU CAN BE MORE FOR OTHERS
REAL | Power of One
by Max Fraser

When so much of our time is absorbed in the pursuit of what needs to get done, it is important we take responsibility for ourselves. Being responsible to others gives us great purpose and meaning, but we are only capable of giving our best if we do what’s best for ourselves in equal measure.   Exercise in all of its forms, is a conduit to equilibrium. When the body is busy, the mind is empty and it is during this meditative state, free from distractions, that we re-capture clarity. On the other side of every effort, is quiet. The intensity of effort is reflected in the reward. Although ph ..read more

POST-BURPEES: IN CONVERSATION WITH PLACE2BE

After completing the challenge I had set myself on Saturday 12 August, I caught up with Jessica Kateryniuk-Smith, in charge of all challenge events at Place2Be.    Jessica: What did you do and how did it go?   Max: We did it; we managed 3000+ burpees between the three of us. We set out to all hit the 1000 mark and some of us ended up surpassing 1000 as we kept at it to support those who hadn’t yet hit their target. I could never have done this alone.    We raised over £1000 (and counting!), which was only 40% of our target, but we had set our fundraising ambitions high ..read more
