hey guys

basically ive always been a huge boxing fan..ive seen most fights from the last 3 or 4 years live and seen a load of older fights

my knowledge of the sport is pretty high

about 5 years ago i joined a gym and started training to basically lose a lil weight but at the same time to learn about the sport as well

i was going there for about 5months and was sparring regularly and holding my own...then i fell from a high slide in a park and broke my arm badly needing screws an pins to hold it together ..i never went back the gym

lately since the pbf-jmm fight ive been having huge urges to go and start again...ive been shadowboxing in the mirror in the house and went out for a run everyday last week

my work is at its busiest from november to january 1st then it is dead round november to december we dont finish till around 8ish 6 days a week around january we finish early everyday and i will be able to go the gym no problem

my plan was to get in better shape and train by myself outside a boxing gym working on my physical condition losing weight toning myself

then in january il be in good shape and can join a boxing gym from square one

opinions/advice appreciated

Well i reccomend you do but its highly dangerous that you could injure your arm, Tbh wait a couple of years till its healed and the bolts come out, best of luck :D

no disrespect but why are you asking for advice on this,it is not my business if you join a gym or not,i dont care when you run or when your days off are,if you want to join a gym and learn how to fight then go to a club where they have beginner classes,walk in and tell them you have no experience and you are interested in learning how to box,its as simple as that,but for you to tell us your day and months you train is not my business:boxing:

what are you trying to say what do you want,i do not care about your high slide or your jogging if you want to know about boxing then you have the right man for the job,if you jog 1 day for 5 miles or 5 days for 10 miles that is your business,i know boxing i need a boxing question,you have a boxing question ask,ask me i will answer the question in a fair unbiased manner:boxing:
