It's because I don't want to be a sloppy fighter. There are enough of those in the amateur side of the sport already.

true there are lots of sloppy fighters... but at the same time.. name one perfect fighter.. there is not one that is perfect, that implies lack of flaws willnot make mistakes, not even bruce lee could have been called that even by his most die hard fans which I am one of, though I do applaud your desire to be so.. do ever expect to actually be perfect, its just not going to happen

I strength train on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays for an hour. And Tuesdays and Thursday I have my Tai Chi class. I was never one to do cardio but my Tai Chi instructor is slowly motivating me to do so.

Always sparr with live person. Don't just hit the bags. The bags don't punch back. The old saying "learn to take a punch then give a punch" can be very true. It's better to get your bell rung in the gym than on fight night. And make sure you sparr heavy. If you want to be a fighter then fight everytime you train.

oh I know that. they already told me that they are gonna teach me everything. But, it will be me that decides on what I am gonna do in the ring. For instance, my coach (Jason Reinhardt) is a smaller guy. He is not much of a kicker, as where I am 6'7" and my leg might leave the ground a few times.(hopefully just from the kicking, not from a matt hughes style slam)
