Re: Trainer dealing with boxer's difficult dad
How are you going to know when he's ready? Competing is different to sparring, the experience will do him good either way. Why do you have such high expectations for him when he hasn't had a bout yet? Sounds like you and Dad are setting him up for a fall either way. It's not helpful for you to be making competition some big deal, let him get in there and make his mistakes. Try not to be so emotionally involved either, that's not a good thing for a coach.
