Thanks for the replies guys.
If you wanted to go abroad - and I’m not really sure why you would because America puts out some of the best boxers - I would say going to Mexico City to train with Nacho Beristain is probably the best thing to do. Kinda similar to what they did on this “Fight Quest.” I forget who the other coach is on this one, but he’s also well-known and renowned.
I’m from Australia. So I will have to go abroad. This is why going to Thailand is easy for me but to do the same for boxing is going to be a bucket list item for now, cos I’ll probably have to work it in with other travels.
Here is another video on boxing in Mexico. But keep in mind that while there’s a kabillion of you MMA types looking to make your Thailand pilgrimmages every year nowadays, an American going to Mexico to box is still kind of rare (as far as I understand) and it’s still dangerous considering Mexican kidnappings, cartels, etc.
Watch your ass if you do go.
I’m not an MMA type, but cheers anyway. I started Muay Thai at the start of the year and I loved it so much I started boxing about a month ago or so ago. And I want to experience doing the ‘real’ way (for lack of a better term). [/quote]
OK, my mistake, I thought you were an American.
Like I said, if you want to do it “real” way, then, as recommended, read “A Fighter’s Heart,” see how he did it, and do something similar.
Coming to America to learn to box is reasonable, because no matter how dangerous the ghetto, it’s still probably safer than Mexico City.
My recommendation is LA at the Wildcard or Oakland with Virgil Hill.
