Today I was sparring with another guy from my gym, and I hit him with a right hook to the jaw, and he went down for about 15 seconds! It was a perfect punch whoch knocked him cold when it landed. I felt good when I went back to my corner and he was getting helped up etc. My trainer even gave him the count past 10 :D

Thats nonsense.

maybe i shouldve said "ive always found it hard to knock people down when they were wearing headgear..." well for me personally ive never knocked anyone down when they were wearing headgear, ive done it a few times with no headgear but maybe its cuz i dont hit that hard, my hands are fast and i can land acurately but knocking people down just isnt a specialty of mine :)...

I would not have guessed that it's possible to cold-**** somebody in headgear. Damn. Glad I learned that here and not in the ring.

Headgear does not help someone take a punch at all. If you can't knock someone down with headgear, your chances of knocking that same guy down do not go up when they take it off.

I sent a guy to the floor a couple of weeks ago, but he didn't know WTF he was doing. I didn't realize you could knock someone out, though.

the point of sparring is to develop technique, not to make yourself feel tough by laying them out

The main point behind head gear is simply for prevention of cuts.

neither did i to tell u the truth, i found it really hard to even see the other guy's chin with the headgear on, cuz not only did the headgear cover quite a bit of his face but also when he had his guard up it was even harder cuz of the gloves.

headgear does dramatically reduce the inital blunt impact of a punch. however, you still risk a wide range of injuries even with headgear on. you are still prone to cuts, neck injuries of various kinds, a broken nose of course, among other things. remember, people have died fighting with headgear on. my simple advice - don't try to KO your sparring partners. it won't help much with your boxing.

like previously mentioned, sparring is generally meant to help you and your partner improve things like timing, positioning, etc.

Sometimes if a guy is just straight out bringing it to you then you have no choice but to bust him up a bit to get him off of you.

I had a heavyweight walk into the gym and he immediately spotted me and told his trainer that he wanted to fight with me. The trainer, who knew me, told him that he didnt want any part of me. That I was too experienced for him even though I may have spotted him 60-70 lbs.

We got going and he was like immediately trying to unload big time on me. As I slipped his punched and moved around I felt comfortable with the situation, he just wasnt hitting me. Then he got me on the ropes and stung me good with a right hand. A bit dazed, I stepped off of the ropes to my right, unloaded my right hand with authority and the guy took the shot flush. He stood straight up and then fell flat as a board to the canvas causing a rather load crash. I wasnt looking to drop the guy but he put in the position where I had to fight to survive. If he wasnt so gun ho on dropping me he would have fared much better than he did.

Basically what Im saying is that always be cool with your sparring partners. Try to work on things that you need while keeping it cool. If he wants to fight then I am always up and ready to exchange hard. When they do come on me like that I fire hard to get the advantage and then drive home a few solid shots extra to make him reconsider his future actions with me.

Sparring, fighting what ever you want to call it is a place to learn to fight. Cant learn to fight if you never actually straight out fight some guys. Ko's will happen the same as a car wreck at a nascar event. You pick up your fighter or tow the car to the pits and begin getting ready for the next event.

i can understand if they were better than
you and was comming at you hard

but msot of the time us guys with experience

Its not bragging. I am staing the simple fact that if a guy is going to go off on me like that then I am going to give it right back. The guy outweighed me by 60-70 lbs. I will be a punching bag for no one. If he would have kept it cool then I would have done the same. He started bringing it so I brought it back on him the same, and like I said added a few good shots in there to keep him in check. If the guy wants to spar thats one thing. If he wants to straight out fight thats another. If he would have kept it cool than I would have complied and followed suite. But he wanted to bang so I gave it to him. I feel no remorse and as a matter of fact, his coach even told me that if he fights me to bust him in ass. I did that and feel no remorse for it. Believe me, if it was me that ended up on the canvas he would have be ecstatic and probably celebrated later that night. I say **** him, he got what he brought thrown right back in his face..
