Default Well I just got my ass kicked out of the superheavyweight/heavyweight division

Ive done controlled sparring before with a guy with only a month more experience than me. So this was my first full contact spar, and I got stomped. Im 5'8 225 with 3 months experience the other guy is 6'4 about 220 and had a couple amatuer fights.

I kept trying to slip punches, but he kept his distance and beat the **** out of me. I pushed him to the corner a few times after eating several shots, and I got in some body shots, but all he had to do was cover up and throw in an uppercut. The punches come a lot faster than I expected. I was like Rocky Balboa in there sometimes, just getting belted with shots. They didnt even hurt, but I got stunned a couple of times. I dont know I just didnt know what to do in there. I tried to throw punches, but I couldnt get within reach.

It definitely left a bad taste in my mouth (as well as some blood) And I never want to feel that way again. I felt helpless and there were about 20 boxers watching, ohhing and aweing at the sight of me getting crushed. My pride was hurt bad. Im brushing it off though, and am going to try even harder to get better and drop weight. People asked me if I was going to quit. **** that, I dont see how anybody can quit after that. I would never forgive myself.

Happened to me quite a few times, its like a wake up call to work harder. It does happen a lot when you are new to boxing, as I seen you are.
I remember sparring a guy who was 40 pounds heavier than me but he was inactive for a long time and I thought I could simply outspeed him and use the angles.... well the guy beat the **** out of me to the point that my headgear turned around.

Yeah, no matter how hard I was getting **** beat out of me, it would only make me mad as hell to train harder, too bad I did not know much about overtraining and injuries that come with it.

How many miles do you run a day? (or when you run how many?) The time?

How many punches are you throwing during your sparring sessions? (how many rounds)

you need to get down to atleast 200 I say while you spar... and thats if your hitting with Great force,... if your 225 at 5'8 you might wanna campaign at 175 if your seriously trying to fight.

If your getting hit with uppercuts when you dig to the body the problem might be that your throwing a lil wide. Its an illusion that your hitting harder by pulling so far back...Try to shorten them and be a lil more percise.

Your gonna need good headmovement at this height being 225 because most people are gonna have the advantage to shoot down at you. Build your neck up as much as possible. Thats gonna be KEY for you if you wanna stay above 160.. which is where your gonna be for a while.

Your key punches are gonna be Hooks...Your Key area will Be the body.. thats all apparent. So when your working are put some emphasis on this training. Jabs are always important but they are mainly just going to be your key to the inside.

Uppercuts and jabs are gonna be your main problem... Meaning the main punch that will be thrown at you... so you should always expect them.

I know i threw alot at you for you only being 3 months but its all Right...

Just work on your endurance and stamina extremenly hard.. they're gonna be your best friend since your just begining.

Hope everything starts to look good for you.

It is not common to see men weighing 225 who are only 5'8," or rather, it is not common to see it in boxing. Would it be rude to ask why your weight is so high? Once you achieve boxing shape I have a suspicion that your weight will drop substantially. No need to have a weight goal, just get in shape. Nevertheless, since you are probably bulky by nature, your goal should be to learn how to fight small. Find a trainer who knows how to teach you these things then spend the many months and years to learn the proper skills.
