Dont let that first time bother you too much. Just like anything else we get butterflies and have fear when its something new we are doing. Im sure you were nervoud about putting your guard down because you didnt want that big guy to tear you up. Just keep going at it, until you reach that comfort confidence zone. If you ask any real boxers on here im sure theyll tell you that still get butterflies when they put on the gloves. But you have to try and keep sparing until you finally realize that you can bang back too.

thanks for reply back. gt work on offence alot more, running sprints, focus, listen and sparring heavyweights more and get my confidence back. oh and lots of water :)

i love the sport of boxing, been reading the forum for awhile now like everday but not posting all that much.

First time I sparred I got wooped. Threw some but didn't land anything clean just gloves. Got hit with a good body shot and got the wind knocked out of me. Don't sweat it. That's why you learn from your mistakes and know what to do next time. When you're training work on different things and make sure you're not repeating bad habits.

Only watched the first rd, but this is a terrible first sparring session. And not because of you or your inactivity, but because you are in there with a guy who has no intention so far as I can tell of helping you learn. In other words, a total douche bag. Geezus fuk it's your first time sparring.

Do yourself a favor and get with someone who knows what they are doing. that will encourage you to throw some shots, teach you how to move etc. Personally I'd like to see the guy you were in there with get his teeth kicked in.

Meh.

ok, just noticed it is your first sparring session back, but most of what I typed already still applies. And I guess a part of the blame is on your shoulders also. You should be edging your way back in, not looking for a match.

Can i just ask if anyone knows when you become an intermediate level boxer? Is it possible to reach that stage without ever having been coached? But by just reading books and knowing the theory can you rise above begginer?

You see im thinking of taking lessons but i dont know whether i should go for begginner classes or not? Ive punched the heavybag and hit focus pads but never with a trainer.

you just shell up and let him tee off. as soon as he starts landing you need to throw back or gtf outa the way. if you just shell up that will happen to you all day esp. by someone who is half decent. throw some feints upper body movt. boxing is a game of lies and deceit not rock em sock em robots.

You can do all the studying, film watching, or watching in the gym all you want but it's a whole different experience when you get into the ring. Trust me. You want to know how good of a boxer you are ? Spar man. Spar with someone that has a fight coming up. You will find out how ready you are or where you're at.

I suggest you start beginner classes. Even professionals have bad habits and still make mistakes. Boxing isn't an easy sport, that's why not everyone can do it. I always agree when boxers say "people that talk **** about boxing never laced up a pair of gloves before so they don't know **** about boxing". That's the truth man.

Yea seriously that guy you were up against was bobbin and weaving and comin in at you, what a dick lol. But since your 200 lbs right now just try to eat a low fat diet aka turkey,lots of vegetables,fat free chicken, and you'll get down in weight in no time.

I just watched the whole thing and you ate a lot of punches man, next time try to punch after they hit you and counter em.

Ive read about how to box, ive learned from youtube sites as well. But i agree with you then that i am still a begginer and if i go to a gym or club i will go to the begginer classes, where they teach you how to stand in an onguard position and all the other basics. Thanks.

First off go to a real gym with a ring and lose all the douche bags that were heckling you! smack talking while sparring is ok but only when its competitive. the black dude you were sparring is a fuk- bag because he knew full well that you were having problems pulling the trigger after the 1st round, and the fact that you were coming off a long layoff he should have eased up so you could at least work your jab but he chose to tee off on you thats not the kind of enviroment that you need at this point. the positive things I see in you are your not glove shy you keep your hands up good and tight and caught most of the head shots he threw on your gloves and your balance is pretty good he was trying to knock you out and he really couldn't even manage to knock you off balance much I think if you get out of that garage get to a gym that will let you spar with more expierenced guys who won't try to take your head off but will work with you you'll be a new man. but if you do decide to spar this guy again for god sakes when he starts to throw stick him hard with your jab it will off set him and he will have to start over trust me he's a sucker for it.

thanks guys for all..... the replys back, read them all. and before, the match started. i knew it was bull****......, i wore 16 and their like 10s the regular mofo im not stupid i ****ing know period.... they wanted to know were i was at, but its ok it didnt get hurt

my brother with an fdup jaw because of surgery can punch harder then him and he had me doing the chick dance, ktfo etc and thats the truth. they know.


reading books and being in the ring, are not even remotely the same.
im sorry. im not trying to be disrespectful or anything its the truth........


sorry for sounding like an ahole but im a nice person at heart.

the two of you froze,it is common for beginners,try changing your pace and move in different directions while throwing jabs,this will give you a feel of the sport and eventually the two of you will start to show progress:boxing::drillserg
