A cutman is a person responsible for preventing and treating physical damage to a fighter during the breaks between rounds of a full contact match such as a boxing, kickboxing or a mixed martial arts bout. Cutmen typically handle swelling, nosebleeds and lacerations.
Working as a cutman to treat the bleeding and swelling to a boxer’s face during a fight requires years of determination, training, and self discipline. The crude, but necessary, first aid a cutman applies in the 60 seconds between each round can make the difference between a win and a loss for a fighter.
💎I may not be a boxer but I have had some battles to fight. There is one particular person I have in my corner in between rounds who releases the swelling of some battles. This person is the most determined person that wills for me to win. They know that I need some emergency talking that cuts me. It doesn’t always feel good but they need me know that once they speak into me that it will help relieve the pressure that is necessary for me to get back in the ring. It is a fool who always walks alone. Who never allows the support of the right people to apply first aid in between the rounds of a fight. These cuts are crucial to being able fight with your eyes open or compromised by swelling.
Unfortunately many people don’t have the necessary people in their corner. Relying on the inexperienced, or the flattering can leave you scared and physically damaged. The inexperienced won’t challenge you and lack skills in relieving life pressures. They are distracting and when you are suddenly blind sided they offer you no real relief. The inexperienced could be the difference between a win and a loss. Having people that don’t challenge us to think about ourselves differently, to not allow us to stay in a current mindset, or a repetitive situation only keeps our eyes shut and unable to see. Who is your Cutman?
