Well it's not down to the trainer really. But i suppose you could ask him for an opinion.

If you feel ready, go for it dude and dont see it as a competitive spar but a educational spar. Take as much out of it as you can and try and use what you've learnt in training. You will benefit from it at the end of the day; you would've got the pressure of your first spar out of the way, you'd have tested yourself on what you've been doing in training AND probably most importantly you'll know the kind of fighter you are and whats your strengths and weaknesses.

Anyways mate hope it goes well and i wish ya the best of luck
Let us know how ya get on when you do fight, ye ?

laters matey

Yes... if you respect your trainer you'll do what he tells you to do. If you don't respect your trainer, find a new one.

You can ask the trainer to spar if you want to see what it is like to be in the ring and to learn but if your intension is to become a fighter then you CANNOT ask him. Only the trainer will tell you when you are ready. Work hard, show you are serious and respect his decision.
