WARRNAMBOOL boxer Neekz Johnson is preparing to tweak her preparation with flooding forcing the postponement of her Indian debut.
Johnson was to fight in New Delhi on September 15 but is now expecting to jump in the ring in early October.
“At the moment the venue and area we’re fighting in is pretty much flooded and the building as well is halfway under water,” she said.
“I am grateful we weren’t there and then the flooding happened.”
Johnson sparred on Saturday before the delay was announced on Sunday.
She will now re-work her training regime.
“Usually we’d taper off now (a week before a fight) but now we’ve got two or three more weeks so we'll pick things up and then one week out taper back,” the former Queenslander said.
Johnson admitted the date change threw her schedule out of whack.
“As you would be, I was a little annoyed and bummed because we’d planned everything and I’d got work off,” she said.
“But you’ve got to look at the positives and that’s boxing.”
