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

Its just something i heard in an interview, i think it was percy, asking if this uk light heavweight sparred a lot, because uk fighters dont

it was scott smith with tony bellow asking him

"SS: I’ve spoken with a number of British boxers past and present recently about their preparations for fights. Surprisingly a lot are not keen on sparring too much before a fight, how important is sparring for yourself and what is the main benefits you get of it?"
