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

Honestly, at this point, there really isn't anybody out there that can beat him, plus he's at the end of his career. The chief reason I believe that he shows us his sparring sessions, is because the guys that he's been sparring with as of late, are pretty much friends with him.

short of putting him in there with a one of the klits i doubt anyone can, so he may as well whore out a few easy fighters and retire healthy. and even with the klits id have to wonder how fast he'd be compared to them.(yes i know putting him in there with them is fairly ridiculous and unlikely)

Yep, he may as well take a few more relatively easy fights and promote them as megafights. Now that we've seen Pacquiao struggle against a 38 year old LW and have a hard time hitting that big head of Bradley, I think it's safe to say that he aint beatin' Floyd nowadays either.

As for him and the Klitz bros...I laughed my ass off when I read that part of your post! That would be funny to see. It would somewhat remind me of Benavidez Jr. fighting that small guy on the Pac/Marquez III preliminaries. Dude had about a 6 inch height advantage and a 9 inch arm length advantage...dude was a lilliputian. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)
