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.

everyone is beatable. omar henry is a wannabe cotto-clone who doesn't have the understanding to go with his style. floyd knew he'd be a safe sparring partner to showcase a session with. can't remember where i heard or read it....but floyd had been owning him in sparring sessions.
