According to Engelen, the most critical moment for boxers is 7-10 days before a match.

  16 April 2024 16:12 - Anthony Engelen has confirmed that he will compete in the HSS Series 5 boxing championship, despite having 10 stitches in his leg. HSS Series 5 will roll out at the Indonesia Arena, Jakarta on April 21.

Through an Instagram upload, the Dutch boxer showed the hard training he underwent. According to Engelen, the most critical moment for boxers is 7-10 days before a match. This period is considered crucial because at that time all the boxer's preparations and training must be completed.

The last 10 days before a fight are usually the most important time to complete the last hard sparring session, the last hard training session, and then focus on reducing the weight, explained Engelen in the caption of his upload.

Even though the professional boxer is no longer young, his enthusiasm and determination are still burning.

He said that the preparations he made were not easy, in fact almost impossible. Especially with the 10 stitches in his leg that he had undergone.

If you want something hard enough, you will find a way, Engelen said optimistically.

Engelen will later face Paris Fernandes in HSS Series 5 Jakarta. Paris himself is not a new name in the world of boxing, because he defeated Jekson Karmela (Kkajhe) at HSS Series 1 Jakarta in February 2022.
