The Pocket

I have a love-hate relationship with the pocket.  It’s a scary place to be yet so much can be accomplished there.  Personally, I don’t feel it’s a place I need to spend all my time so I don’t.  I get in there, get my work done and get out.  Sometimes I let out a grunt before entering the pocket – solely a mental game.  If I’ve got all I need to get in the pocket, it’s fine and it’s over.  If not, I’ll go back for some more when the time is right.  Some folks like to wrestle around to show they have control – it’s a good place to rest in this case.

Always take your rest.” – boxing coach Bunny
