Re: I can't translate my heavybag, mitt, and double end bag work into sparring
Thats cuz bags dont hit back, once you get past the nerves and get more comfortable in the ring it translates. My old trainer Merhav Mohar put me in the ring with this guy my first sparring session who had boxed 3 years already. Man my nerves killed me, I wasnt slipping jabbing or anything the first 2 rounds, plus he busted my nose. After I calmed down and got my second wind I saw punches coming, hooked off my jab and noticed he dropped his left after every jab. I got the best of him the last 3 rounds but the first two he gave me hell. Just calm down and dont think too much thats the main thing, just react and worry about what you should do.
