Re: Trainer dealing with boxer's difficult dad
Some people are plain stupid in terms of there boxing understanding - let him go, if he's got anything about him he'll come back. Let him fight when your ready to let him fight. Your the trainer, your the boss.
If the boxer respects your opinion enough he won't fight- if not let him fight but not with you there. He didn't respect your opinion enough to wait. People are ready at different times. If he's being trained like an idiot then you have to spend time retraining which is annoying - you know best.
If they go somewhere else let them- any success he enjoys will be down to you anyway.
