One of my friends is having his 3rd pro boxing fight tonight and he has asked me to do his corner. He hasnt been training at a club for this fight, instead just doing his own workouts and sparring/padwork with myself and a fw others. Is there any tips you would give to someone on his first cornering?

 P.G.P.
Praise -Tell em what he's doing well and to keep doing it.,
Gripe -Tell em what he's doing wrong (the biggest mistake-  don't give him a shopping list)
Praise - And remind him again what he needs to do to win. Keep him pumped up and beleiving in himself.

check his eyes for coherentness make sure he can focus on you. don't have too many people talking to him. one at a time.

water, ice if needed, and don't forget to put in his mouthpiece before he leaves the corner.

and grab the stool on the way in/out! :)
