    Default frequency of fights

    i personally don't have any fights yet, but my coach told me that on average he can get me a bout once every 2 months. is this the normal thing for amateur boxing? I hear about people fighting every week! should i get a new coach?

    I haven't had any fights yet eather but with the use of comen sence a fight a week would not be good for you in fact it would be stupid your body wont have time to heal from the fight before so i would say keep your couch cuz a fight every two months sounds good gives you time to heal and also go over problems from your last fight.

    In the lod days they used to fight lots and lots: A sample from the record of HoF member Fritzie Zivic, from 1938. He fought on the following dates; 1/1, 2/14, 3/7, 3/21, 4/12, 5/29, 6/13, 6/20, 7/9, 7/12, 8/2, 8/12, 8/22, 8/26, ...you get the idea. They learned their trade, got hit less, and didn't come out gunning for the KO every instant. You box, take your time...and get better at boxing. It has ups and downs; personally, I'd fight every day which isn't wise ... Starting out, every 60 days is probably good, gives you time to learn new things between fights.

    It depends on how tough the fight was.
    If you win with a KO1 than you can fight next week again.
    But if you fought hard for a decision I suggest you take at least a month before you fight again

    Old fighters, some had fights every week, personally, i think it comes down to attitude, training and mental toughness. That determines when, and how often you should fight. But for guys like us we should fight as often as our trainer see's us fit, however if your at your peak, and he's not letting you fight you might just have to talk to him, which usually is the answer.
