Re: Worst Day Sparring: Boxing, Muay Thai, Grappling?
I agree the clinch wrestling aspect is exhausting. I've been dropped with knees to my ribs just under the armpits. I'll have to ask you how to defend this other than to push them off.
Muay Thai sparring for me is not as damaging in degree, because there are more targets to hit and more defenses to use whereas in boxing the punishment concentrated, mostly on the head. I've had more headaches in boxing than in MT.
