A fighter who has not properly prepared for a fight is more susceptible to a knockout. Preparedness includes:
- Proper training
- Safe weight loss regimen
- Avoiding dehydration
- Good conditioning regimen
If you get knocked down or knocked out the gym or in the ring, you are susceptible to another knockout or permanent damage if you do not properly recover before fighting again. Honor your gyms knockout rules or any fighting suspensions and you will live to fight again.
