    Remember all your training, your strengths, your weaknesses, and rest as much as you can. Another thing to do is to train your mind, visualize the fight, just as if you were shadowboxing; if the guy has more reach, fight him close, if he has shorter reach, work the jab and the counters when comes in. Seriously, train your mind.

    EDIT: also remember the vital points: solar plexus, chin (duh), temple, floating ribs, just under the ear (on the jaw joint), etc, fight smart.

    that sucks, but still, go through things in your mind, it'll REALLY help in calming you down.

    Just chill Monday is fast approaching.

    Dont tense up during the fight, just let the jabs flow, dont retreat in a straight line, come in with angles, just go on autopilot.

    Its a fun experience.
