    Watched a couple of David Haye interviews this week and he spoke about the need for tough horrible sparring for Joshua if he is to have a good chance of avenging his loss to Ruiz. Hate talked about how Booth would use a
    Sparring to make Haye as uncomfortable as possible....an example being Takam sparring in preparation for the Chisora fight.

    In my opinion this is the best type of sparring...especially in prep for a big fight....the risk though being maybe a higher chance of injury.

    But my question is....cam you only handle sparring partners that are close to the level of your opponent if you have real confidence ? That taking some beating whilst learning gameplans in sparring won't effect your mindset come fight night ? Especially if you aren't a naturally gifted boxer

    Inoue might be available as the date and location of the Donaire fight hasn't been finalized yet... Might be too much for Joshua, though.

    Daivd Haye's training regime too much wear & tear on the body.

    You cant be better than your teammates. That's the rule of the thumb in boxing. Those are the people you train with, this is how good you are going to be.

    Exceptions? sure there are, I guess. But that's the rule of the thumb.

    The better your sparrings, temmates, the better you will become. And that's true for joshua, and for me too. For everybody. I would never look for "bad/soft" sparrings to my fighter, NEVER, no matter the fight. I would try to find always the best of the bests. It's not always possible, ofc.

    Yep, especially combined with putting on the extra 20 pounds or so at heavy.

    Haye is right, AJ needs to find the toughest sparring he can in preparation for the rematch, I know Ruiz will.
