Hey all. I'm 16 years old and i don't have any boxing experience but i'm very interested in it. I'm going to look into it sometime soon. Anyways, in the meantime, i could use your guys' tips.
About 4 or 5 of my friends have boxed eachother before at my friends house. They've done this maybe 5 times or so. I have never been there when they boxed. This Friday their boxing though and they want me to box this one kid. I'm just looking for any tips you guys have since i've never boxed before. I'm not a complete idiot and it's not like i know nothing....but i'd still like some tips. I just have a punching bag that i've beat the crap out of for a while now lol, that's all of my experience.
Anyways, this kid is 5'7 and i'm 5'9, close to 5'10, so i have some height on him. He's not in that great of shape. He has a huge gut lol and isn't very athletic. I have the power, endurance, speed, almost everything on him....BUT he has experience and i don't. He claims he took this self defence class a few months ago and he learned some from that, and SUPPOSEDLY he thinks he is a good boxer. He's boxed my other friends like 5 times. Personally, i'm assuming he's not good, he's my friend and just thinks he's a hardass so i don't THINK he's that great...With the height and my athletic ability over him, i have that advantage, but he's got that experience.
So i'm just looking for any help/tips you guys could give me for the fight on Friday...if it happens. Thanks a lot.
