Default Becoming a sparing partner?

Professionally. I hear it pays.

I am ****, but have a little technique. I am however quite a big guy and can stand up to a fair few shots. I reckon I could be an effective talking punch bag for a up and coming pro.

I need a job, fast, and was wondering how to get into this line.

No. Don't do it to yourself. Read this, even though its really a glorified version of what being a sparring partner means. (this guy has actually "made it")

Yeah good point. If a pro wanted to hit an object that doesn't really hit him back, he'd hit a heavy bag.

Being a Sparring parther is no easy job, you would have to be in proper shape and you could take a few beatings along the way.And don't just think you will get in all the big camps either you do have to be pretty decent, have a long hard think about it first before making a decision.
