Default keeping the fight in you

Any advice on keeping the fight in you. The other day my trainer had me spar with one of the pro fighters that belong to my gym. Yeah i got beat but i felt i could have done better. He was so good. He could time me and pick his shots. When i jabbed he could catch me with a quick one right before my hand was pulled back. I landed a few good shots but once i got to round 5 i was gone and he started to step it up little by little and i got hit more and more. It was like all my power went away and my hands started to get lazy. No matter how hard i punched it seemed like he was unaffected. How do you keep the fight in you and fight through the pain how do you keep the power there in the later rounds?

Guts really. It's different in sparring of course. But in an actual bout, I just don't want to lose. If I'm really tired I usually think back on something that was really hard/tiring and/or painful and in comparison throwing a few more punches for the rest of the round isn't that hard.

when im tired in a ring i sometimes just go to war with the boy im fighting obviously not the best method but you can sometimes get a late stoppage but im starting to box more when i get tired

1. train real hard and you wont get tired
2. try to pick shots better
3. missing tires you out real bad (so try not to miss)

its hard but its boxing

If he's a pro then he will fight at a pro's pace which is slower than amateur pace. If you fought the first three rounds at amateur pace I'm not surprised you were getting tired. You need to spar as an amateur or as a pro and they are not the same pace.

just depends how bad u want it. try to think of it as a chess match. or especially if ur losing real bad and it's only sparring, try things that u have wondered if they will work or not. u might find a real good trick by doing this. also, afterwards, ask him for some tips

It all depends on how badly you want to win. If you want it bad enough you will learn to adjust to his style. He is as human as you are, and he can be beaten. However the desire to fight has to be in you, and if it is not you don't belong in boxing. Boxing is a dangerous sport and people with a lackluster attitude are going to get hurt.

I think this is the perfect answer, simple as that, different pace and most likely experience, not burning out too early, happens alot to me under bigger stress than usual.

Ralphc, instead of questioning somebodys power of will (and heart) try to give decent advice (if your experienced).

i am not saying my will power is weak i just wanted advice on how to stay in there and fight through it. i noticed that his pace was much slower than mine he would not throw as many punches. he would keep it slow and look for openings or use combinations when he felt i was getting tired. i will be sparring with him in a couple of days. but last session i had with the am slowing my pace down really worked. thanks for the advice.
