i been in my gym boxing for real for like 9-10 months... i been sparring since feb.. ive been in over 100 rounds... i spar all types of people... i just seek advice on better ways to train.. different ideas.. and also sparring tips.. i feel like i need to try new things and learn new things to get better.. and also to keep it fresh for me, cuz this whole waiting for first fight business is tiring and a long process.. its like a training camp for 10 months.. its almost unbearable.. but i go to the gym every week 5 times a week, to show i want it, and to show i want my fight asap... i wanna start my amatuer career..

so basiclly jus post trainin ideas n things i can do .. vids if u want.. and also sparring advice too. ill answer questions or anything .. jus if anyone actually cares to help a brother out if they can lol...

but ya i know my trainer should be asked all this.. but his main pro is fighting in a few weeks so he is focused on him, andi respect that. so im lookin elsewhere for answers to this one.. thanks

my best advice is just to get your trainer to make your training more difficult and mix it with techniques. try to get with your trainer and ask him if he knows any other gyms that he's closely affiliated with so he can get you to spar some of the other gym club fighters that you never fought before. just have to go in with that mentality that what ever routine you're doing now, you're going to make it twice as hard, doesn't matter if you have to do extra rounds in sparring or more strength training or more cardio training... w.e to give you that extra edge that will benefit you later down you're am career.

Damn thats crazy 10 months and still no fight? Ive been boxing on and off for about 6 months and sparred about 15-30 times i guess and my coach wants me fighting asap. Kind of a rough estimate on sparring I have a horrible memory.
