A fighter in my opinion should stop sparring about 2 weeks prior to his fight.
Good post mate.

The only point I disagree with is the stopping sparring 2 week before a fight if this applies to amateurs (especially inexperienced lads)..

I know everyone is different, and for some lads this may not be an issue, however, we have a few lads who would suffer if they didn't spar for 2 weeks.

It seems to be the counter punchers that suffer more than the come forward bangers in my experience.

Personally, I would encourage a light spar 3-4 days from a fight if it was an amateur contest.

Maybe these effects are less noticeable at the higher levels as the lads are more experienced ? Not sure, I don't train any top level lads. Thoughts
