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 **** 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 **** 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.
