It never ceases to amaze me how the majority of arm chair boxers who have never boxed know who the poor and good fighters are. I know its all of a matter of opionion with me being no exception. But let me tell you, for all those guys who have never attempted this fantastic sport try it please............... i have been fortunate to take up this sport for the last 2 years and in this time have gone from not managing to complete 3 mins body sparing to now eventualy managing to go through 2 2minute rounds of open sparing with a excellent ex proffesional boxer. Wow what an experience that was, i train 5/6 days a week both boxing and kick boxing and yet i couldnt cope with the pace and stamina which was required. So my final thoughts are...........to be a boxer takes a lot of hard work, dedication and b..ls and i would never ever think anyone who steps into that ring as being a poor boxer mearly only one whos not quite as good as some others.
Your thoughts please
