You've learned from some good guys and you seem to have done the neccesary courses and know the pitfalls. It's sad to see trainers be so jealous of eachother and having such an ego and not trying to learn from others. It certainly hurts the sport.

I would've loved to go into training but i think the time has passed me by. Starting now would be doing a massive disserve to myself and to anyone that would be unfortunate enough to get involved with me. It's funny because all the male members of my family are BIG boxing fans, but no one really went into and got involved in the sport in any serious capacity, apart from some extended family members. I was the closest to being a fighter but alas it never happened and it's probabily too late now to get into training. There would be too much work that needs to be done and you don't wanna end up trying to learn on the job and ruining someone. I've got a young son and i'll try and get him into the gym when he's old enough. I just hope i don't become one of those pushy fathers who wants to live his dream through his son and ends up doing serious damage.

Having your own gym and producing a champion would just be the ultimate.
How old are you? Why tell yourself you can't do something before you even try. Guess what, I couldn't box, be a good dad, go in the army, Run an iSO security company, work the doors, get an a level, get a degree, work as a body guard, make a comeback after 5 years, compete in prizefighter, train boxers, be a personal trainer, have a decent job, raise a family, start my own business either - these are all things I couldn't do for whatever reason... But I did it! Unless your 70 years old and about to die I recommend you follow your dreams - because that's what life is for - everything else is just an obstacle that needs to be overcome ....

If you have a vision or a dream go for it! **** been realistic- let the realistic people sit at home watching tv while us crazy people do the impossible!

I can see why you're a personal trainer, Jeff. That is some motivational talk right that, bro. You got me fired up! Really appreciate the encouragement.

I'm 32. Too old?

Btw, i couldn't agree more about communication being so important and knowing how to transfer what a trainer knows on to his fighter. You see so many trainers who you know have so much insight and knowledge of the game but can't communicate it properly to their fighters.

No way is 32 too old. Ur dealing in knowledge - if you know more then the next person what is to stop you. Don't sell yourself short- if you have a goal that you really want to achieve then make it your daily objective to move toward your goal.

You started it by composing this thread- you began to acquire and swap knowledge and opinions on training, you got a template for a route - a how to! I like what you write your observations on the subtleties is brilliant! 32 is the perfect age to start for you. Because its your time right now. Start getting your plans together and do it. I promise I'll help you any way I can.

Exactly, this sports a drug and one i can't kick and i don't wanna .

Reading thoughts in this thread, i wanna get into boxing again whether it be fighting or training. My fitness is getting better and should soon be doing a few sunday sessions with a former pro. I'm gonna relax enjoy the training and see where it takes me. Your a inspiration to us Jeff i think i can say that on behalf of us all on here.

You must do a thorough analysis and breakdown of Eubank's game, Atberry.

To echo what someone else posted - what a great thread. The attention whores and anti-Bunce crowd won't come near anything which will expose how little they know of the sport.

I've really enjoyed every single post on here - even the different perspectives on the same stuff are fascinating. I think it gets easy to get caught up in hype, but once you know what makes one fighter technically more capable of beating another, you see through it.

The first time I really took notice of technique was when someone showed me Leonard-Hearns I: two massively gifted boxers with brilliant fundamentals in a high-speed chess match for 14 rounds.

You see how Leonard tried to jab to the body and needed to adjust to Hearns' reach, you see how Hearns wasn't used to guys who could get to him in close, - then you see them switch their normal roles, but the footwork, the jabbing and punch selection... everything has a purpose. There is no wanton aggression - both men were looking for openings, using their feet and feints to create them, and using their brains to adapt to what they could find.

And at the end? Pure killer instinct from Leonard when he got the chance to take out Tommy, he did it mercilessly and with cold precision.

I was fortunate that someone pointed all of that out to me.
