Part 3: Arriving in Vegas
It’s 24 hours until fight time. The bets have start pouring in from the poker community and are coming in nearly equally on both sides. One fighter starts to see the fight as “50/50”, while the other thinks he’s a big favourite. The coaches from both sides have arrived in Las Vegas and are feeling good about their fighters — so good that it’s almost implausible.
We check in with both fighters to see how they are doing mentally and physically. Both men are going into the fight confident, but both acknowledge the potential to lose. Is this fight about the process, or the result?
