that's got to be a load of bollocks re: contact lenses.

I've got a mate who's pro who wears contacts.

I've fought muay thai, mma and BJJ and always worn contacts

and there's nothing worse than not being able to fight for some reason outside your control. You have my sympathies

Amateur boxing doesn't allow contacts, pro allows soft contacts.

Hopefully you can convince whoever gives you your eye test that you're fine to do it.

Why's that rule in place? Is it something to do with being knocked out and contacts could damage your eyes or something?

How could you ever make it pro if you were basically fighting blind as an amateur due to that rule?

Perhaps it goes back to when contacts were glass?

didn't get a fight, all of the lads who were drawn to fight made weight. managed to hold on to my license, at least i know for next time to keep it quiet i wear contacts.

the most bullshit thing is that I could probably fight okay without them, but even if I wanted to they still wouldn't let me fight.

Have had 5 separate doctors over the last month give me the 'ooo err it might be cancer' chat about a large swollen lymph node that popped up in my neck. This is despite me repeatedly saying I had an ear infection on that side, and not having any other cancer symptoms, but instead having a load of symptoms consistent with an ear infection. 3 of them were thick as shit NHS gps, so I guess you get what you pay for with these people, but one was a consultant opthalmologist and the other was a fucking ear nose throat surgeon.

Lo and behold my routine scan shows nothing abnormal, but I'd been properly stressed in the interim.

Just had a family member diagnosed with cancer relating to the lymph nodes. Pretty nasty stuff. Good job you got the all clear man.

Best: Weather's been spot on here today. Birds out in force wearing next to nothing. Would never think I was wrapped up in scarf hat and coat just last week. In a great mood now.

Worst: Spent most of the day stuck in doors in uni on a Saturday.

best: bought some glasses
best 2: finger isn't broken, healing quickly and should be back at training soon.

worst: forgotten how expensive glasses are
worst 2: some mental lass nearly bit my cock off, putting somewhat of a dampner on a promising evening.
