    ive been boxing for a year now, have always been doing it along with lifting and got my best physique of my life thanks to this combination. i know this is not ideal for actual boxing fights though, but have no intentions as i enjoy the sport but the risks are too much for me. whats your training regime like anon? also ignore demoralizers whove never thrown a punch in their lives.

      Training could be better. Been doing it for 2 years, going to a boxing gym 3x a week, jogging once or twice a week but thats something i need to really ramp up

      Typical boxing training session is 3x 3 min shadowboxing, warm up jog around around the gym outside for 10 laps, 4x 3 min bags, 10 mins non stop mix of slam ball and other exercises, then an abdominal fitness routine at the end with crunch & twists. My first gym dived into hard sparring with 12oz gloves from week 1, coaches there had never even boxed before themselves. Since moving to a real gym i havent sparred in a few montha but back at it this week

    Really cool idea to give yourself brain damage trying for an amateur career at the young age of 32

        go for that 1-0 record and retire like a champ. you can then brag to your friends and children that you were once undefeated in the ring.

      Brain damage doesn't just happen you idiot. Amateurs here fight in 3x2minute rounds with 12oz gloves. If you compare that to professionals it's nothing and if you get hit clean you get a count as well.

    Dunning Kruger. 32 is a fine age to start. Some men start to have fights much later. Sure someone starting at 32 likely won't have a crazy big and long pro career but I've seen amateur and pro fights well into men's wisdom years. In Thailand some of them fight professionally into their 60s.

    Kickboxer not boxer but pre fight focus on cardio and explosivity, Running and burpees, Shadowbox with 1kg dumbbells in your hands and 1 minute straight hitting heavy bag.

    Also spar and get 3 - 4 combos you trust and can throw under pressure and drill them, stay behind the jab

    Its better to be tired from attacking rather than tired from defending.

      >gets tired from flurry punching
      >opponent turtles up. survives the flurry.
      >no energy left to defend
      many such cases even for pros

        This is why Thais run 10 miles a day in addition to their 2 daily training sessions. You will never see one gas out in a fight the way a western boxer or mma fight does. Their gassed out in round 5 is what our fighters look like after throwing their first combo or two of the first round.

          I don't know much about Thai boxing but don't western boxers employ a lot more foot movement if I'm not mistaken, whereas Thai boxers who are more static?

            Eh yeah and naw. Boxers Re the kings of footwork. Boxers are more technical in head movements and footwork but Muay Thai burns like 20% more calories so I'd imagine it is the most calorie intense striking sport if you don't count MMA sports.

              I can't imagine how much calories a few rounds of intense grappling with a strong opponent burns.

                It's a lot. BJJ rolling burns as many or more calories as running.

        In my experience the judges for club shows and regional tournaments do not like flurry punchers.

          Judges love to see the jab. Big point scorer.

      >gets tired from attacking while his opponent weathers the storm
      >opponent now stands in front of a guy with a weak guard, no foot movement, sluggish head movement and weak counters
      good plan
