    Just got back to the boxing gym after a 2-month layoff from any training,
    and went straight ahead to spar with a professional boxer. How did I do sherbros?

    I'm the guy in black

    I didn't need to watch the video to know it was domination by way of flip flop.

    Looked alright to me, you seemed a bit back foot dominant, maybe just cautious from the layoff? Or looking for a left hand. Also he was obviously just playing with you, switched it on in the last 10 seconds (but still playing).

    You in Manila? I'm heading there in a few weeks, know any good gyms in the QC area?

    Some folks just gotta make some money. Folks who have a hard time getting stable work, no savings, got kids, and desperate.

    Seen it happen here and in the states alot in MMA. up to 6 months training, get the pro license, and have on their way

    Go easy on the pro boxer. I think the reason why was that the gravity level was set up too high and he was probably not used to it.

    I don't want to be a dick here but 17 seconds in and this is already unwatchable.
    You have probably been training for a couple of months so normally you're going to look flat footed and unexperienced.
    But, the pro boxer gets absolutely starched by any 135er at my gym in under 60 seconds.
    Somebody tell that guy to retire before he gets hurt.

    At first I thought that was somebody off the street, but pretty quickly it becomes clear his head movement is not bad and he seems to be playing around.

    + you don't know what's going on in his life, could be sick, coming off injury, just not taking it seriously etc.

    It is dangerous…. not to take seriously. Especially undervalue hobbyists, there is some percentage of hobbyists that are really dangerous. Usually with previous experience in another art, then interupt, later took another art as a hobbyist but if landed, blow might be not less dangerous than form medium level pro. If landed of course.
    I'll not judge or analyse video in depth, however if this wasn't TS but some gym warrior, with less than 20 seconds till ICU ……….

    This is the only reasonable explanation. That makes sense
