Default How do sluggers spar?

Guys who are pretty slow and have average technique but hit like a truck. Guys like Foreman (Although his technique was pretty good) and Ernie Shavers.

Did they just knock their sparring partners out?

world class brawlers have good technique most times. just a lot of time they dont choose to use it at world class level. know few brawlers that can outbox the shit out of average fighters in the gym

They practice technique in sparring, not beat the other guy to a pulp.

It's just that when instincts kick in, they revert back to slugger mode in real fights.

Of course, the management team gets a bigger guy that can take punches better or have their man hold back and not swing at full power.

Generally I would guess they work on other facets of their game. There is less purpose to just trying to knock people out in sparring (they know they can do that), than say working on cutting off the ring, feinting to get the power to the target and working on defence. Look at Foreman in Zaire, most of his sparring sessions involved cutting off the ring on his sparring partner to mimic actions he would have to take in cutting off Ali (though he did pound on them when he got them where he wanted them). Worked like a charm, Ali spent the whole fight on the ropes...wearing Foreman out and beating his face in with sharp jabs and rights.

If its a slugger against a slugger.. It'll be like, "You hit me, I'll hit you".. Something like that..

The idea isnt to "beat" your sparring partners.

You just train with them to get used to a certain height, reach, speed, power or way of fighting that you may have to deal with in your fight
