What boxers are the best to watch on youtube, or even now?
What's the best workout for someone preparing to box?
Keep in mind i'm new to the forum so I have no idea if this is the right section or not, thanks in advance.
There are some good sites that have huge databases of the best fights, I'll PM you a link to one of the best ones. Check out some of the top fighters (you'll get an idea of who they are from Pound for Pound lists), and have a look at the best fights from the last few years.
Get a sense of how fights are scored as well, and score them yourself as you watch them. That really gets you into looking for the little things that fighters do and is the best way to get a sense of the 'sweet science' of the sport.
In this day and age there's an incredible archive of classic fights on site like YouTube as well. Again you can use 'Fight of the Year' lists to get an idea of what some of the really monumental ones are.
Honestly there's just so much to explore for someone getting into the sport, and once you're hooked that's it. The rabbit hole is deep and there's no going back.
