Default Do yous think it's counter-productive to spar with people much bigger?

Coach at my gym mixes it up and sometimes throws people in with people who are much bigger (I'm talking a 5"9 welter vs. a 6"3 heavy). Obviously the bigger guy is told to watch his power. [NB this is normally when there aren't enough people to spar with, and obviously the smaller guy has to be happy to do it]

When I spar these guys I just find it demoralising as there's nothing I can do against them - my shots don't hurt them, and if I try go too hard they'll match my power and destroy me, I get constantly picked off by their jab and can't get in etc.

Makes for a pointless exercise imo.

What do yous think?
