In The Corner
Vaseline on lips, cheeks, nose and over the eyes so punches slide off on contact. Also to close cuts and stop nose bleeds. Vaseline does not prevent powerful punches from doing damage, but does give fighter some protection. Ice pack to reduce swelling and cooling. Towel to clean blood and sweat. Water to hydrate and cool fighter by pouring on his head.
