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
I should have clarified it and your right, HARD sparring at least 2 weeks out. We do spar but mostly light stuff leading up to the fight. The thing is, you don't want to be stupid and suffer an injury or cut and jeopardize the fight.
