My client embarked on hour four of his fight preparation course. We are getting him ready for his Boxing match in November. My job is to supplement the main training he is receiving. We decided to focus areas he feels he needs to improve upon whilst keeping his conditioning up. All his training is now going to take place in the form of batches of 2-minute rounds to keep everything as relevant to his fight as possible. This should help him get comfortable with the round timing and be able to pace himself.

After a warm-up we went into 4 x 2 minute rounds of sparring. The first two rounds were attack and defence only whereas the last two were free sparring. This was inspired by his wish to build a stronger defence. We established his strongest defensive techniques and began working counters off these defences.
