I was knocked down (gloves touched the canvas I think but a little off balance) in my first fight and hurt to the body a few times in sparring.

I don't know which is worse.

I sparred a guy who was 175 lbs and I was like only 125 or so at the time. He hit me so hard, all this blackness like covered my vision and it stayed there for a second and a half, really scary. Wasn't knocked down, wasn't even on wobbly legs, but that blackness scared me. I think he hit me on the side of the head or close to the ear. I just heard the trainer scream stop, and I guess that's why the guy didn't follow up with another finishing shot. We sparred without headgear.

Jesus Christ, what boxing gym do you train at? Your trainer should NOT be letting you spar with a guy whos 50 pounds heavier than you if you're only 125 pounds. I walk at 145 and compete at 132 and never spar fighters at 160 pounds or heavier.

I'm a pretty resilient kid and have taken alot of good, hard shots so I consider my chin to be pretty good. I've had a couple standing 8 counts due to fatigue or getting pushed back to the ropes, and was scored a knockdown because I lost balance and my glove touched the canvas but none of those really fazed me. The worst shots are DEFINITELY the body shots. Took a good one to the liver and it knocked all the wind outta me and it felt as if I had been momentarily electrocuted. Body shots imo are the most effective to dish out and the most painful to receive

Well, this was back in Bulgaria when I was 17 years old. We didn't get access to the headgear because the headgear was only for the boxers who would compete. We were like the tripple A team or something and if somebody would show potential, then they get to train and spar with the competing team and possbile compete in the amateurs too.
As far as the guy that was 175 and me being just 125, I've sparred guys 180 and 190 but they have taken it rather easy on me, hard body shots yeah, but not anything really bad to the head. Now this 175 kid was really aggressive so he came at me really hard and I guess in self defense I was nailing him wih one twos and left hooks, two minutes later is when the hit came.

One advice that I could give to aspiring boxers who are in the lower weight divisions. Try to avoid sparring with much bigger guys even if they are taking it easy and you wear a headset, because if you do that on a consistent basis you develop bad habits. Just look at a guy like Zab Judah, I can tell you that this guy spars with big guys all the time, either that ot the Kostya loss lol.
