coming up to a fight, I would spar everyday. When i'm not fighting then it depends on what quality sparring I can get. Sometimes pro's and am's come down from other gyms 3-4 times a week or it might even be 1-2. No point sparring people below my level as they will make me work less hard! in them instances I do more padwork. My trainer uses them glove-pads and hits me back ALOT.



Sometimes they can be harder than sparring, if you have a good coach. My trainer uses ones that are more padded than them, so i don't do pitty patter work.

It's not sparring but it can be just as good if the trainer gives you some beats! My ex-pro trainer is still ripped to **** and very strong and gives me bad arse body blows. He throws head shots unannounced (as they would be in a fight) and I have to slip or roll them. None of that '1234 and then roll'. He'll say '1234' or any other combo, and then throw a shot and i have to roll with my own reflexes. If your dad is a boxing person, show him this post and tell him to give ypu some tough love!

you should spar at least twice a week. no more than 3 or 4 rounds a day.
i fought in the amateurs years ago and compiled a record 98-21. sparring takes a lot out of you. even getting ready for tournaments where we would fight three nights in a row (if you are winning), we only sparred twice a week...
