      But would you give up 100lbs to someone with the same skill level as yourself?

        pair up for skill over weight. Sparring is about learning.

          All the time man. It goes both ways. The guy heavier knows not to go for the kill but also don't just go in there and be stupid. This just comes from experience.

            I sit down on my punches.. so I got broken hands and in winter my hands can't open up a jar of jam.



            Boxing is so unnatural

              Weight doesn't matter so much, it's speed and strength that matters. I've read and from what I've seen at gyms it seems accurate, that the average person can bench press around 90% of their body weight.

              I weigh 11 stone 7 pounds, but can do 3 x 8 reps at 16 stone bench pressing, making me as strong as the average 17 stone man, with the speed of somebody much lighter.

              I wouldn't fight someone who weights 17 stone and can bench 25 stone, especially if they had any kind of speed, but an average 17 stone guy, no problem.

              It all depends on body type, I'm not heavy, but I'm almost all muscle.

                I start hitting hips hard

                Mobility goes away


                Then I start sitting down on punches

                  I'm 6 ft 195 lean
