Should you throw them? I have been smashed with my fair share and thrown them at others in sparring. Generally it pisses people off and the sparring match turns into an all out war... what are your thoughts?

if you think you could learn from it or get use from it then it okay but personally in sparring it is not to hurt people but to try to couterpunch and gain boxing skills

They shouldnt get pissed at you for upper cutting.

I definately think you should throw them in sparring, how else would your partner get used to them? lol

People get pissed when ya hit him with the jab...or a straight...the hook to the body. You shouldn't use those punches either.... they tend to make people mad when I hit them with those punches...

Just go in there and hug him maybe he'll feel better then.

For you idiots im being sarcastic.


Hit this ***** with whateva punch you can land... your sparring to get better not to make sure someone doesn't get hurt...

NOW you can take some power off of it if your hitting too hard... but of course you should throw it...

If they wanna go to war become a sharpshooter and pick-em off.

CATASTROPHE

Agreed... If you don't train with it, you won't be ready for it...

People in your gym must all be new to boxing if they get annoyed at punches being thrown at their head in the sport of boxing.

Then capitalise. When people get annoyed they get careless. Time to start landing a few more uppercuts.

The uppercut to pissed off ratio will be going off the scale. He will be getting more pissed and you will be landing more uppercuts. Fun times!

my suggestion to you is to ask the other guy if he want to throw them as well.
