the boxing gym had a little sparring tournament today. basically its a two round thing. you get into the ring, spar a round with one opponent, he steps down spar with another, then you step down and he spars with another, and so on. Well I sparred with 2 guys one very similar to me, Im 174lbs 5'10", had a good round, then spared with a heavier but shorter guy, had another good round, then sparred with a 50yo 205lbs guys who landed a hook to my eye in the middle of the round that landed me on the floor. that was the end of my sparing for the day. my only consolation is that ive been doing this for 3 months and he's been fighting for 10 years.
