He didn't say "beat up". He said beat. Every time i sparred, i always tried to get the best of my opponent, and beat him, in other words, win. There is a difference between winning and inflicting damage.

if you are focused on winning in sparring instead of workign on the technical aspects of your game you are holding yourself back.

How are you going to improve on head movement, footwork or aggression if you're afraid that getting hit a few more times means you lost?

Ok what i mean is:

I dont want to knock the guy out! i would love advice on techniques to out box some body this tall, for example he does very well against a simple jab would you say working the body on some one this tall would be the best idea? or as im a southpaw look to get a few right hooks in there?

Thanks

6'10 and only 83kg!!! How skinny is this guy?

As you're a southpaw you should look at getting the left cross into the solarplexes. It should be an easy target against someone of that height

step on his left foot with your right foot, then hit him low with a straight left to the balls! head will drop, right/left uppercut, right hook, Left bolo punch then get the hell out of there!!...don't forget to kick him in the shins on the way out!

You will benefit from fighting people of all different styles. Should you come across a guy who's 6'10" in a competitive fight, you will be thankful for this sparring experience.

Not that it sounds like you are going to put it to good use, because you are talking about beating him. There are no winners and no losers in sparring. It is purely for you to learn. So I suggest you do just that; learn from it, no matter whether you hold your own or get a one-sided beating.

Having said that, how you approach fighting him would depend an awful lot of both of your attributes and styles. I would imagine that at his height he will try to be imposing his reach on the backfoot. If he does, then make yourself a smaller target, make him bend at the waist and lean-down with his punches, keep your hands up, move your head and try and worm your way inside.

If he tries to impose his size on you and wants to go to close quarters, then box him like Haye did Valuev or Pascal did Dawson. Move around the ring, keep him off balance, slip in and out of range and get your punches off first, shift your feet and move then back out of range and keep him cluelessly following you around the ring.

In theory I agree but in reality there's always some ego and that's not a bad thing. It makes you want to improve if you don't get the best of it in sparring. I have two people that I spar with often, and we do actually compete a little. Of course it's all friendly and we tell each other our gameplans and give advice, but "winning" does play a role.

The primary goal is improving your game. But if I get punched around the ring I will analyse why that happened and come back stronger next time. If the roles are reversed next time he'll have something to think about and improve as well. That way both get better over time.

It's not the retina but the cornea. Anyway not really, it's still ****ed. But the whole event got cancelled so I'm not fighting next Saturday. Next fight will be November 5/6th in Germany. My cornea will be fine by then, I'm fighting no matter what.
