I volunteered as i couldnt pass up the chance he was my favorite fighter. did 4 rounds with him before him and nate did like 6-7 rounds. obviously he was picking his shots with me as i was fighting at 141 at the time he is 154 champ. he didnt throw with too much power even against nate, would just stay on the inside and constantly be working, something campbell was great at too. he landed the jab at will. normally i can read a guys body language by staring into his chest, to see his body tense up before he throws the shot. winky just flicked it out there so easy. made me realize you really could win a fight with just a jab. he really liked his left uppercut but i never saw him throw it that much in actual fights. winky is an unbelievable technician if you ever saw him sparring in the gym.

no pro fights about 30 am. was around alot of the top guys in the florida scene (winky,tarver,lacy,campbell). stopped competing seriously about a year ago lost the love and drive that woke me up at 5 am to run and all that jazz. i still train religously but with more focus and s/c the past year. stop in to spar every month or so to stay sharp. i know i will get the drive back eventually. would like a few pro fights since i put so much of my life into the sport, but not the same world champ vision i had. was a good counterpuncher and slick for a white kid. pride myself on never going down in sparring or a fight, honestly never been seriously rocked, so mabye i will fight pro until i find someone who can knock me out. im sure there are quite a few out there who can but i wanna know what it feels like tbh.

I've sparred a few, the one in higher weight classes dont go hard though, I sparred a girl whos 8-0 as a pro now, she had no power though and I could only jab..surprisingly shes got 6 stoppages

Some pros arent that good TBH. some are great. In general they tend to hit harder, I've been in w/ better ams though than pros.

I have and I'm ashamed to say I was hurt by a straight right hand. Landed right on my mouth, I saw stars and my eyes watered immediately. I had to take a break after that hit. Dude hit extremely hard but he had been boxing for about 4 years before I even sparred him.
yes!but with trainer and coach present @ sparring [email protected]

I'll back Rockin' up on this one - to a certain degree. In most cases good 16 oz gloves with decent padding can give you the old half second buzz but usually nothing more, however i've sparred some heavyweights (pretty average heavyweights) who were throwing bombs and felt fairly sore - i weigh 135lb though. Mind you it was nothing like getting hit with fighting gloves - a good hit with 10/12oz gloves from a guy your own size can beat the pants off a 16oz shot from a heavier guy.

I spar with my coach quite often. He's the former WBO & IBO cruiserweight titleist. He's got 20 years on me and although I'm in decent shape and pretty quick he kicks my arse. It's difficult really, as I probably show him too much respect (which he's earned). Anyhow, he's in great condition and is still able to box my head off!
