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

Who knows, people care too much about appearances, I mean even Floyd used to never show any recording during sparring after that Paul spadafora incident till recently

it's more than just appearances. if i can watch a guy work for a few rounds each time he spars...i can tell u exactly what his strengths and weaknesses are...i can tell u how to beat him. i can also train and drill a fighter accordingly to give him a difficult time. the element of surprise is very valuable in boxing. if u don't know what u have in front of u, chances are it will be difficult to defeat them.

true but tapes work just as fine as long as there not changing anything up extremely. And if they have I guess that fighter better adjust
