‘I think I’m a better fighter than my mum’ – Annie Armstrong
I was a little bit nervous about fighting, she said.
I had never done it before, I had been training.
And I got out there, I put in the work, I got my first win, and then I got knocked out in the fifth round.
But then the fight came and I got a few good punches in the face and the next day, I fought again.
I was happy to fight again, I was in good shape.
I thought I’d won, but then I just got knocked down again.
It was very frustrating and I was not really enjoying the fight, but it didn’t really matter.
I just felt I was winning the fight.
I’d fought against good fighters and won, so that was the best thing for me.
I still feel that way.
It’s just like a fighter’s career, it’s like you’ve got to put in a lot of work and be a little more consistent, but I’m happy with where I am.
