Live with the tremendous pressure before his greatest battle: - It never stops

Sarah Mahfoud is pressed. All ledder and edges.

The 29-year-old boxer stands in front of his short career's biggest challenge Friday, when the south african Bukiwe Nonina with the flattering nickname of ’Anaconda’ stands ready in the ring at the Danish Fight Night in Nykøbing Falster.

So, it is there, it applies. Not the second. In the ring, she is alone. Only in the company of a ten centimeters taller opponent, who has come not to dance or take. But to knock her away.

she Loses, she loses a big step towards your dream. Maybe will a defeat be equal with the end of his career before it really got started.


A victory is the opposite. So black-and-white is the martial arts. Everything depends on the next match.

- It's not about being afraid of the adversary. It's all about expectations for themselves – and the pressure they put on themselves.

- All the training. You want to show something good. That you can. For the loser I it here...then it's not good. I can smoke longer down, so I don't get the right match the next time. You do not get a chance to, she says to Ekstra Bladet up to fight against Nonina.

- Each time is all or nothing. It never stops. Now it is a title that is at stake. Next time perhaps a WORLD title shot, which again could open up more. You have to constantly forward, forward, forward. You cannot afford to defeat. The mental pressure is huge, she says.

Mahfoud does not hide that she loves it. It all. Boxing, training, fighting, the game. It all. But it is at the same time a mouthful of the larger to be a professional boxer.

- The first match is about to go up in the ring. You walk out from the locker room and up in the ring. With the opponent in front of him. To go on tour is a struggle in itself, " she says, and adds, that the good unity, she and his brother Allan all the days have had with the other in Hillerød Bokseklub, makes a big difference in such a situation.

- It may well be, boxing is an individual sport, but there is a great unity, and we do a lot of to be there for each other, when it comes, she says.

- But the feeling when you stand there in the ring and the bell rings. So shut everything else out, and you go into themselves. In a completely different place. You forget everything around one. And as you stand there. Now it is now. And then something happens. All that with the fact that you hate the opponent. Gu do you do when not. But one should not show weakness, and you must be ready, she says, and get something that resembles a kuldegysning.

- What is the feeling you have in the body, with the purpose of the regatta on Friday?

- Right now I'm totally excited. Uuuuh, it will be good. To get it triggered, it comes.

--------- SPLIT ELEMENT ---------

I will never boxes for the other

Team Sauerland can well forget it. Sarah Mahfoud is and will be Shed Pallet-boxer.

For the joy and respect of the long-standing promoter is huge in Denmark's perhaps best, female boxer.

she tells brutally honest in an interview with Extra Magazine prior to his fight on Friday in Nykøbing Falster.

- He is, of course, my boss, but we have it super good together. Mogens is nice, and we drink something like coffee together, says Sarah.

She calls to him a couple of times a week. How to just to hear how it goes.

- There have been many stories about Mogens through the years. And he has had much hardship. But is there someone who has done something for the Danish boxing, then it's him.

- He doesn't get the recognition he should get. We (she and Allan, ed.) would not be able to live out our dream, if it had not been for him. We owe him everything, she says.

- He is a legend, and I would not boxes for any other than him.

- What if the Team Sauerland came with a good contract?, samples Ekstra photographer.

- No, thank you. I'm happy for Mogens Palle, it comes promptly.

It is Danish. I like that. It is the Danish Fight Night. It is our. It means something to me. For us, she explains.
