Life of a Fighter
Have you ever wondered was its like to be under the bright lights and inside a boxing ring? The Sweet Science is an expression used for boxing, which has been around for hundreds of years, and gaining millions of fans. Fans only get to see the boxers in action when they fight but don’t see the dedication that has to be put in. Boxers face challenges everyday inside and outside the ring. Becoming a boxer is harder then it looks, it’s more then just knowing how to throw a punch. It takes years to be fast and to learn the tactics, putting dedication, and having the confidence.
As becoming a boxer training is very important which consist of going to the gym about 5 times a week and having a clean diet. Training usually is three to five hours. There’s bag work, sparring, and ab works out, of course this varies by days. The diet has to be filled with protein and water. Alcohol will slow down the boxer and they will also gain weight.
A mindset of upcoming boxer has to be filled with a lot of confidence.
As I follow around Jordan Williams he lets me see the insides of an up coming boxer. The mindset of an athlete is interesting especially a boxer. Up coming professional athletes have to be confident as Williams told me. Williams showed me around the gym and there was a lot of dedicated people trying to get a workout in. Everyone at the gym seemed focused and knew what they came for.
As a boxer trying to go pro Williams told me that he was to refer from a lot of social activities such as party, and gong out on dates with girls.
Williams says that having to much fun in the social light can damaged his image and his focused. A lot of atheles this age get caught up with going out to much and don’t ever end up hitting there goal.
Professor Jones Profile Essay assignment
English 1101 Concise Guide p. 75-97
For this assignment, you are to write a profile essay based on an observational visit of a place or an activity. You may write about a person, a group of people, a place, or an activity. Your goal will be to observe your subject closely, and then to present what you have learned in a way that both informs and engages your reader.
Depending on the subject you choose for your profile, your audience might consist of general readers who may be familiar with your subject, so you will need to teach them something new about the subject. On the other hand, if general readers are not likely familiar with your subject, you will need to teach them enough about your subject to understand the profile.
The essay must contain at least 6 paragraphs and should be at least 3.5 pages long.
o Paragraph #1
Introduce the place/activity. In this paragraph, you will need to create the context for your profile by giving your readers the background information necessary to help them understand your subject. You will need to conduct some research to gather this information. This paragraph will end with a clear thesis statement that reflects the main focus of your profile (your dominant impression of the place/activity).
o Body Paragraphs- #2, #3, #4, & #5 , etc.
In each of these paragraphs, you will narrate your observational visit. Interwoven within these body paragraphs, will be information you gather during your observation and your research. This information will support your thesis statement.
o Last Paragraph
This will be your concluding paragraph. In it, you will need to restate your thesis (your dominant impression of the place/activity) in different words. You will also need to leave your readers with a memorable image that helps them remember what you have taught them about your subject.
You will need to cite two sources of information in your essay. One source can be an interview; however, it is not required to be.
o Possible Sources: A Web site for the place/activity, a brochure for the place/activity, a series of photos (at least 4) that you took during your observational visit—counts as ONE source, a newspaper article about the place/activity, a press release about the place/activity, etc.
You will need to choose a subject for which you can have the observational visit completed sometime BEFORE class time on October 12**if you cannot complete your visit during this timeframe, choose a different subject.
