Default being nervous kills my stamina...help

I've been sparring with new people lately and for some reason I really get nervous and tensed...I start to feel weak in my legs and seems like I get worn out faster then when I train. I know this is the mental aspect of boxing but any tips on how to get rid of this tension?

dont think about it too much but its important not to be too relaxed aswell. just think bout all the hard work you've put in and think more so on techniques as ur waiting to get in the ring, and not so much "ohh **** man im nervous... fuk i betta calm down... oh no im waisting energy" ect....

Focus on your breathing. Other than that, just spare more.

After getting some ring experience you'll learn how to calm down...it just takes time.

This is the truth, sometimes when your new to the sparring game its hard on you, you tense up, sometimes even hold your breath, take deep breaths through your nose and let it out slow especially after you throw some shots get air as often as you can, when you punch breathe, you will be okay just try to relax a little, not too much though just a bit.
Taking a deep breath can help with the nerves.

Whenever you feel like you're getting tense, take a couple steps back and to the side... then take a deep breath and exhale it quickly letting the shoulders drop at the same time. This is a classic relaxation technique.

Try it while you're shadowboxing or hitting the bag and make it a regular part of your game. And while you're sparring, get someone at ringside to yell it out to you so you remember to do it. Vitali Klitschko used it all the time.

Breathe normally, know that you're gonna get hit also helps.

Take slow deep breath. Don't focus on the outcome of a fight like winning or any ego stuff, or past outcomes, focus on the now. Is he/she a slugger, fast puncher, counterer, etc. Remember you're balance and take it slow and play it as a game. And as you spar more you'll be more relaxed.
