It's also about finding new areas where you can improve people. I can spot a blagger very quickly - I'm not bothered as I wouldn't give them the time of day but what upsets me is they ruin careers.

I think as a coach it's your duty to know as much about each area as possible. And just like a boxer if your smart about it you'll cut it , and if not then you won't.

The mind is also so important. Understanding that and how a fighter responds to critsm is also so important.

I don't think there is a time limit on a decent amateur career. I think you should carry on until you can deal with every style and every punch. Once you've got that then time to think about the pros.
With the amateurs I meant if someone wanted to compete and be an able boxer, not a world beater, but a decent amateur. Not even to go to pros, just for the pictures in the album and the medals on the wall.

Like on a novice level (10-15 fights at best) or intermediate (fight at nationals?) is there a real difference between the late 20s guys and the teenagers, ability wise?

I don't think so- most of the guys I train are older! Kids just have more time to practice!

Sorry, I should have stated that I was referring to Pros with a few fights. Guys way past the basics.

That makes sense. Boxing is movement and balance at its core

Do you think it's an absolute must to start the sport young to go far?
