Re: Questioning whether or not to continue boxing...
Can I ask what gym are you at? I have just done my level 1 ABA coaching course and I am a novice boxer myself and listen mate, you should not bet getting injurys like that from training.
A lot of gyms don't take enough care of all their boxers and just throw in raw novices as cannon fodder for their best kids to beat the shit out of. Most of the sparring you should be doing should be conditioned or technical, you only need one or two sessions of a really hard open spar for each fight. Sounds like you should leave that gym mate, if this is the kind of crap that's happening in training your probably at the type of gym where they'll match you up with more expierienced and heavier guys regularly.
