Default Re: Got my ass kicked in sparring by a 13 year old last night!!!

A 13 yr. old Golden Gloves Champion at 120 probably has tons more stamina than a 33 yr. old, is slicker than snot and likely moves around the ring like a hummingbird.

Add to that the fact you didn't go at him hard----and that's how it should be given the age difference, and you're in a tough spot. More like target practice for him without fear of being punished for mistakes.

Bet it's good to see young talent like that. Boxing in New Orleans has taken a back seat to other sports as there's very few gyms that train boxers now. Shame too, because N.O. has a rich boxing history.
