Well i hear a lot of different things like fighters that hardly spar, especially uk fighters, while say the mayweather gym have some all out sessions, i mean thay resembles a few gyms ive been to as an amatuer but why do uk fighters shy away from sparring? Is it the risk of injury, i mean i always thought sparring was the best way to improve given a decent partner

i don't know that to be true. i was in the uk this past january and we sparred daily. some of the sessions were pretty intense too. it doesn't need to be done daily...but it should be done. it's the only way to put everything together. it doesn't need to be all out either....but it happens. most times when guys are going all out they end up with injuries. i like a controlled atmosphere for sparring. when i was back in chicago...there is no such thing. it's why i believe a lot of the good fighters don't make it out of there. it's similar to philly that way. my philosophy...save the fight for the fight. sparring should be about learning/perfecting ur craft. u don't have to beat the shit outta ppl to accomplish that.
