I only have an exhibition but I have sparred 3 pros so I think I can call myself a boxer.

I can box pretty well, i never done boxing but im doing muay thai kickboxing, i have done it for 5 years.Also ive been watching boxing for many years and learn something new every time i watch.I try to analyze what they do in the ring from small movements like feints,all their combinations and why they do the things they do.

I have 7 amateur fights (5 wins) but I still don't think I can "box". I need to work on footwork, headmovement, straightening up my punches, improving defense etc. I've only been training for about 8 months.

I've had some success, but I'm just now starting to become a boxer instead of just a guy in the ring throwing punches.

I can box, but as anyone who is really into boxing, I know that I have a room for improvement.

Who cares, there are alot of delusional people, but it doesnt really effect the people who can actuallly box.. once they start getting deeper into boxing and getting into the serious stuff will show if they are any good or not.

Yes this is true. Boxing really tells what you're made of. It's a tough ass sport. To me, that's real fighting. Civilized, refinded, intellegent, savage...you know all that stuff. I agree with that one fellow who knows he can box, but he still feels that he doesn't. This is a game where you really need your confidence. Nothing is more pivotal than your confidence when you're in the ring.

Boxing and soccer are probably the two sports where there are huge margins between different classes and skill level.
