What does head gear and gloves, have to do with fundmental boxing skill??? Not to mention next year,ther ewill be no head gear.

And the basic element of scoring in the Amaeturs is the age old concept of Hit and not Get Hit.

I think it depends on when the fighters make the transition, a lot of the fighters you mentioned made the transition in their early 20s. I think when a fighter makes the transition after their late 20s they miss out on valuable experience as they're forced to play catch up to avoid reaching where they'd want to be as a professional passed their physical prime.

If you show me ten sucessful amateurs that had great pro careers, I could show you ten who also failed in the pros. I believe the experiance really helps in the pros but it is no guarantee.

do they score for not getting hit?

and head gear etc etc has alot to do with it when it comes to comparing amatuers vs pros.

If you dont see it then okay, you obviously are just on some bias trip.



and thats you behind 50 cent correct?

Any type of experience is good in terms of anything you do. Many Olympians with extensive amateur backgrounds become good pros. Whoever disagrees don't know shiz about boxing or life in general

amateurs is where you hone skills and technique, pros is where you sustain it and start to develop more heart and stamina than you've ever imagined. amateurs takes you to the limit, pros breaks those limits. GOD i love boxing metaphors
