Confidence has a huge part to play. Pac-Man is as confident in every exchange he’s in as he would be on a heavy bag, no hesitation, bullet proof mind set, insane work ethic, god given attributes (speed, power, punch resistance) all help too.

99% of the things mentioned in this thread go for any elite athlete in any sport. It's not specific to the top professional boxers.

Self belief.
That's such a good answer.

I'm trying not to sway this towards music and keep this on boxing, but Liam Gallagher. Amazing self-belief.

Getting back to boxing, look at all the Four Kings, they had the lot, amazing self belief.

Look at Mike Tyson, look at Pac.

It's that +1.
