As a corner or cutman, you’re responsible for making sure your fighter has the best chance of winning his/her fight. Preventing them from picking up injuries and treating any wounds/damage they take during the fight.
Whether it’s boxing, kickboxing, thai boxing, or MMA. When the first round ends, only you can to help your fighter. It’s up to you to get them ready for the next round. This is why you need to be prepared and have the right equipment.
If you don’t have an enswell iron, ice packs or swabs at hand, then your fighter won’t receive the correct treatment he/she needs. This puts them in a bad situation for the next round. If swelling, cuts or nosebleeds aren’t treated properly, the fight will be stopped!
As a trusted corner or cutman, you need to know the products you’re using are of high quality, as it’s your fighters safety in the balance. If you tape them with inferior tape and they damage their hands – this could end their career.
