First night of sparring last nite, fight is on Sat 4th April at thaiboxing, guy is coming in at 100Kg and i'll be sittin at about 94-96kg, we had hard workout then sparring, then with 5 min left of the class i got told to go in the ring and everyone else to sit and watch, trainer told this other guy to get in, said "you both have 30seconds to knock each other out lets go"

Me and the guy just started to throw big hits but i kept a tight defense while he was just swinging like mad, guy can hit hard and was brilliant 30 seconds, trainer said he was doing this with everyone that was having a first fight cos if you cant take 30seconds of hard sparring then there no way you will take a fight, and i took it so did the guy so our fights are on baby!

Just happy thot id share with people who enjoy to fight also lol

he said "30 seconds to eachother out"? must be an MMA thing lol

whats your gym like? i would think your coach should put u in there and spar 3 or 4 rounds to better prepare u for a fight because the fight is longer than 30 seconds

Son, thats not sparring. What will you learn from trying not to get knocked out? Nothing. That would not happen in a fight either both fighter is way to smart to try it.

Thats funny, good luck! but was that really your first ever time sparring?
Lots of lighter guys dont realise how hard the punches are at heavier weights.

Sorry i really didnt make this clear at all the way i typed it.

We had our workout, then we started to spar, everyone did 8 rounds and then at the end of the class he took me into ring for this "30seconds to knock him out" spar, because ive not fought and he said he wanted to make sure when a got hit really hard i wasnt gonna back off the guy i was gonna keep on coming. Not first time sparring no, just the way i told it made me sound like a tool lol ive sparred alot just never had a fight, sparred a few boxing pros when i used to go to boxing but at thaiboxin now for a while then going back
