Alfred is matched with another lightweight (about 135 pounds) named Rivera. Following amateur  rules, they are scheduled for three 2-minute rounds. Rivera is short, wide, muscular, and relatively  immobile. Donatelli advises Alfred to "stick and run," which recalls the tactic Alfred used so  effectively against Denny, a similar fighter, in the sparring described in Chapter 13. Unfortunately,  Alfred is numb with nervousness as he comes out of his corner and walks into Rivera's opening  punch to Alfred's mouth. Nevertheless, Alfred quickly recovers and fights well, hitting and moving,  until he listens to the jeering of the crowd, taunting him for his evasive fighting tactics. Alfred stands  and fights, playing to Rivera's strength, and ends up on the canvas with the referee counting over  him. The bell rings to end the first round as the referee reaches "three."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
