Default Sparring partners?

Where can I find sparring partners to train and meetup frequently?

I have one on one sessions with a boxing coach so I do not have any sparring partners as such.

Please advice.

Thank you.

visit a few gyms and organise some sparring, expect to get the shit punched out of you though hahaha
i have seen this before, people who do 1 on 1 training with a boxing coach (just boxercise) think they want to spar until they get hit and realise it isnt for them.
Good luck with it though.

Go to the Fitzroy Stars gym. Robbie Peden is the trainer there. He'll make sure you are handled properly.

I have sparred once and i did get hit with a shot that rattled my brain but that was 4 months ago, I just need to find someone who I can with maybe on a frequent basis so that I can test my skills.
