Boiling Down

Time for a new challenge.

I hereby challenge myself to get down to the 175 pound light heavyweight limit by the time of the Calzaghe Hopkins fight in Las Vegas on April 19th.

John beat me in the our first challenge, but I beat him in the second. Both our weights have been recorded in the training blog this morning.

Whoever loses the most weight between today and then wins.

(There is a hint of Lent and penance about kicking this off on Ash Wednesday, don't you think?)

I've got 13 pounds to go as of this morning.

Which means that you win if you get down to 14 stone 3 by the time of the fight you have won.

Actually I've always had the ultimate aim of 80kg. 175 pounds is a little below that, so if I make it I have a chance of staying at target.

That said tonight is devoted to footie, beer and a kebab!
