Cheers Alex.

Yeah .... love it !

I don't Box competitively anymore, but I still train/spar and do a bit of coaching.

My record was - won 5 ( 1 by TKO ) , lost 1. Started when I was about 12-13 and was into it very seriously till about 17. Then some moron fired the gym over some kind of dispute. Took a while to refurbish the gym during in which time I lost interest unfortunately. Since then I have been on and off for the past 10-11 years.

I regret not keeping at it seriously though.

What's your backround mate ?

Rich.

Alright guys. Been doing it for about a year, I'm welterweight and my record is 1 fight 1 win. Just started doing it for the fitness but really got into it. Find it helps to relieve some stress and anger, and a great work out. I think I'm down to box at an exibition night at the end of May should be good. Leedham mate never been but if its a good night might be worth a look, bit far from me though.

Did boxing for close on 3 years back home, got my amateur licence but the group of trainers that ran the gym died shortly after in a car accident and the next place i went too shut down shortly after joining so i never carried on with it. But not sure how well i would have done competitively though as i had a tendency to block a little to much with my face ;)

Ive box three times a week, find it amazing for fitness. proper old school gym too, a ring, loads of scabby medicine balls, plenty of press ups and sit ups!! I love it! Not boxing competitively, but there are quite a few UNREAL boxers there. Anyone read Ian Olivers book ''Fighting Fit''? Its the best fitness book out there and I guarantee it will improve your fizz no end!

I came back 2 hours ago from my first boxing session ever, never boxed in my life, and I can safely say that I fcking love it. I picked up on the footwork real quick and my jabs, I'm a south paw so every time the coach says right jab I have to do it with my left which confuses me *text deleted*, but its brilliant got punched in the face and for once I laughed about it hahaha. I'll be going 3 times a week and I'm *text deleted* take it seriously I think, we'll see.

Boxing

I boxed during my time in the Corps. It was, as ever, hard work, but also enjoyable.

I also met up with Terry Marsh a year or so ago in London. Terry is a former marine, who won his world title fight in Basildon in 1987. I think it was around March 4th. I was there with some of my oppos. The music played that night was "Everybody Wants to Rule The World" By Tears For Fears, and that night, Terry did just that.

Cheers

I started boxing fairly recently but am finding it very hard.

I have been doing martial arts for around 12 years and in the last few I found MMA via UFC on TV, so started Muay Thai.

So now I'm Trying Boxing to improve my reaction speed, and sharpen my hand strike technique. Problem is, its in my nature to use my elbows and knees. I'm ok when I'm thinking "box,box,box" but as soon as I stop thinking and let my basic fighting/defense instinct take over, my elbows start to speak up. Yea they don't like that at my club! same as if someone comes in for a clinch (cuddle really isn't it guys) My knees just find themselves desperately wanting to nestle into their ribs!

skipping is good for co-ordination basically, it can be used for fitness but its like half as good as running but if you do it a certain way it works your forearms quite well.

Yea I'm getting the hang off it now, my feet are getting less clumsy. I just got back from a two and half hour KO session and my body feels like its *text deleted* shatter in to little pieces, my arms are dead, my back is dead, my legs are dead, my wrists and my feet are numb and I got punched a few times in the face (was my fault I had my guard down) and got completely beasted with Burpees , luckily I love the pain or else I would of been out that door and never to return *text deleted*. The coaches are well tough on people and proper gives you discipline when your fatigued and when you feel like slacking you'll get beasted even harder, If its one thing they hate is slackers, one guy nearly got kicked out the club today because he was slacking and got a good ear full *text deleted*. Boxing is the perfect training for PRMC I believe and has introduced me to a whole new level of pain and its f@king buzzin.
