Default Wearing Contacts while boxing?????

I know its dumb, but i know someone who always used to get hhis ass kicked in sparring sessions. He wore glasses, and claimed he couldn't see in the ring. But he recently got contacts, and now he's like 30 times better. Should he continue wearing contacts in the ring?

I remember when they stopped a fight so they could search for a contact. Tell him to forget boxing if he can't see any better than that......

I wear daily disposable contacts and i wear them for boxing

With the very rare occasions one comes out, i bring a few backup contacts.

I would recommend only wearing disposable contacts when boxing because they are near impossible to find afterwards

A lot of guys spar and even fight wearing contacts. Judah I know for sure wore contacts as a pro. You just need to bring a second pair if one gets knocked out.

Contacts are cheap. Cost aboue the same as a box of condoms so thats cheap enough to me :P
